Additional Information: 

Wings, a band fronted by Paul McCartney of Beatles fame, embarked on its "Wings Over the World" tour in 1975. The tour was highly publicized and shows took place mostly in arenas and stadiums. It traversed three continents - Australia, Europe, and North America - and involved 66 shows. It is unclear why this pin reads "October, 1977", as the tour wrapped at Wembley Arena in London on October 21st, 1976, a year earlier than the date on the pin.
