Directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night, HELP!) who came out of retirement to film this tour documentary film. Paul McCartney's first world tour in 13 years, this is a composite mix of many if not all the cities they visited.
His wife Linda is on stage to perform along with several others (unknown to me, but might be from his group Wings).
Has 22 complete live musical performances of Beatle and solo McCartney hit songs. Filmed before sell out crowds in 45 cities in 13 countries, includes the Guiness book record for the then largest audience ever to see a solo performance (Rio de Janeiro) at 184,368 fans.
92 minutes of well shot and edited concert footage. I didn't care much for all the editing that packed in so many cities during a single song. Dolby stereo in vhs format. Rated PG (why I don't know, but the case says for some material not suited to children).
Haven't rewatched this again. The first time was enough with only one Beatle present. Some songs were toyed with, updated or something like that so they weren't faithful to the original songs. Includes lesser known songs from Wings as well.
This is not just one concert but many spliced together for each song.
