Denny Laine celebrates the 40th anniversary of "Wings Over America" with a live on stage performance of their greatest album, Band On The Run" --complete and unabridged! Within a year of its release, "Band On the Run" had sold over six million copies worldwide, having spawned three U.S. Top Ten hits: "Helen Wheels", "Jet", and the title track. The singles alone occupied the U.S. chart for 45 weeks, while the album stayed on the charts for over two years. Band On The Run was in the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 as recently as 2010, when a remastered version of the album was released.

By far the most successful album involving any of the Beatles following their breakup, "Band on the Run" was created by Paul McCartney, Denny Laine and Linda McCartney. The other members of Wings quit the group just prior to the departure to Lagos, Nigeria to begin sessions for the album, but out of adversity came advantage. With Paul McCartney on vocals, piano, drums, guitar, bass, and keys, and Denny Laine contributing vocals, keys, acoustic, electric and bass guitars, and Linda on keys and vocals, Band On the Run transcended its time to become an album whose deep cuts such as "Let Me Roll It", "Picasso's Last Words", "Mrs. Vanderbilt", "No Words" and "Bluebird" are better remembered-and played more often on classic rock radio-than most hits of the era.

Expect other Wings hits such as "Live and Let Die", and "Time to Hide" as well as Denny's legendary lead vocal on the Moody Blues classic "Go Now" to round out this special anniversary show.
