The year was 1972 and Paul McCartney had released the albums McCartney, Ram, and Wild Life since The Beatles broke up in 1970. But it had been a substantial amount of time since McCartney had hit the big stage considering The Beatles stopped touring in 1966. This all led up to February 9th, 1972 when his new band Wings began their 1972 tour at University of Nottingham. It was a day that began a rigorous performance life for McCartney who would continue touring up until the present day.
