McCartney & Wings / “Rockshow” confirmed for Blu-ray with 5.1

Paul McCartney and Wings / Rockshow confirmed for Blu-ray

Paul McCartney‘s classic Rockshow film, which documented Wings’ 1976 world tour is to be released as a standalone Blu-ray and DVD on 10 June 2013.

Rockshow was filmed at Kingdome in Seattle, and was originally a cut down version of the concert. It has never been issued on DVD (aside from a few performances on the McCartney Years DVD anthology), but was released in 1980 on Betamax and later on laserdisc.

This new issue on Blu-ray (and DVD) will present for the first time the complete full length concert, fully restored from the original 35mm film, with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 surround sound audio mix.

Our understanding is that the Rockshow Blu-ray and DVD will not form part of the forthcoming Deluxe Edition of Wings Over America. The DVD with that set is rumoured to feature the 75 minute Wings Over The World documentary. More on this here.

It will also have a limited screening in theaters in May (see below).

I have since lost my blu-ray (the disc, I still have the book/cover). The blu-ray now retails at insane prices. Its only 5 years old. Anyone know if it will be re-released or what I can do to replace it?

I’ve really be enjoying this disc since it was released. I think it’s been heavily re-edited as well. I saw this in the theater when it first came out and was turned off by the inclusion of an obsene amount of shots of audience members that I walked out about halfway through the film. Thankfully this has been corrected.

I’ve been reading bad reports about the sound on this. Supposedly there are dropout in the bass channel on the Blu-Ray & DVD. Does anyone out there have it? Can you confirm?

I was going to rush out to pick this up but after watching the “Wings Over The World” Doc included in the recent Box Set, I didn’t feel the need to do so. That DVD includes many of the exact same performances as Rockshow…

I heard a version on youtube that had that problem and I have read similar comments. But I have since seen the dvd and it was fine. So it may be a 5.1 issue. If your system doesn’t support 5.1 or maybe there are some bad bootlegs out there. If it doesn’t work take it back.

It was also released on VHS.

[…] The two-CD standard edition will simply be a remastered version of the previous CD release (in new packaging, of course) that turned the triple album into a two-CD set. The deluxe edition will add an extra eight-track CD of alternative live performances of songs already on the album-proper. A DVD completes the audio/video content of the deluxe edition and will contain the 75 minute film Wings Over The World. The Rockshow film is being released separately on DVD and Blu-ray – details of that can be found here. […]
