"Venice was a charity gig organized by the city council and supported by UNESCO as a fundraiser to help save the foundation pilings of the city and to slow down the city's sinking into the sea.  A series of concerts were organized throughout the summer with Wings' visit being the biggest.  The set-list is identical to the one played on the previous tour of North America so there are no surprises but the performance is much more enthusiastic than the final date in LA.  "Bona sera! How you doing, okay?" Paul says after "Jet".  Before "Lady Madonna" he encourage everyone to "clap your hands, stomp your feet or crack your knuckles."  Linda says "Live & Let Die" can take place in Venice since "it is filled with international intrigue."  Denny Laine sings a very spirited "Richard Corey", saying he wished he could be "Casanova" instead of John Denver, and how Corey really gave to the "charities of Venice".  Garry McGee is his book Band On The Run writes that "after the 'Soily' encore, the laser lights shown on the red brick tower at the opposite end of Piazza from the stage and converged into Wings' 'W' emblem.  The event raised $50,000 for the city of Venice."
