The Who to release new live DVD

‘Quadrophenia’ and ‘Tommy’ come to your screens…

The Who are to release a new live DVD showcasing the legendary ‘Quadrophenia’ and ‘Tommy’ soundtracks on November 7.

The three-disc package will include two stage performances as well as never-seen-before footage and exclusive commentary from both singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend.

The unseen footage will include some material from 1964 of The Who playing at a London pub shortly before releasing their first hit single ‘I Can’t Explain’, which appears as part of a sequence during the ‘Quadrophenia’ show.

The DVD will showcase a performance of ‘Quadrophenia’ taken from the band’s 1996/7 US tour, and marks the first time the music had been performed as Daltrey and Townshend had originally visualised it with a combination of acting, specially shot film, visuals and audio.

It also features guest appearances from Billy Idol as The Ace Face and PJ Proby as The Godfather.

The second disc features the 1989 performance of ‘Tommy’ at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles with guest artists Elton John, Phil Collins, Billy Idol, Patti La Belle and Steve Winwood.

Other extras include souvenirs and photos from the shows and a new interview with Billy Idol.

The third DVD boasts nearly two hours of live Who and Townshend solo hits including some rare acoustic performances of Who tracks.
