Two different films?
26 July 2002 | by (westmont, il) – See all my reviews

To my knowledge, Wings Over the World and Rockshow are not the same thing (as one comment seems to state). Both are based on Wings' 1976 world tour. But,to my knowledge, Rockshow is a concert film and was released in theaters (at least it played occasionally in theaters over the years). Wings Over the World was a TV special that aired in 1979 - I remember watching it. I recall it being more of a look at 'life on the road' side of the tour. All apologies if I stand corrected.
