The Who / Tommy Live at the Royal Albert Hall

The Who performed their rock opera Tommy live and in its entirety, for the first time back in April this year, at the Royal Albert Hall. That concert is being issued on DVD and blu-ray with the audio available on CD and vinyl packages.
The performance of the 1969 album was in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend have supported for a very long time. The band have performed Tommy in the past, but crucially they always dropped a handful of tracks. This time it was different and the whole album was performed – and enhanced by specially created animations. After the performance, the band (inevitably) treated the audience to a short set of Who classics!

The Who – Tommy Live At The Royal Albert Hall is release on all formats on 13th October 2017. The audio from this special occasion is being issued on two-CD and three-LP vinyl, while the entire concert is being issued on blu-ray and DVD. Interestingly, there are no audio/video ‘bundles’ or deluxe editions

On 1st April 2017, The Who took to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall to deliver a blistering performance of their legendary rock opera, Tommy. Written by Pete Townshend almost 50 years ago, the full length piece had, until then, never been performed live by the band. In a rare treat for fans, The Who decided to perform Tommy for the first time ever in its entirety for their participation in the annual Teenage Cancer Trust benefit shows. These shows are produced every year by Roger Daltrey at the iconic Royal Albert Hall to raise essential funds for the specialist treatment of young people with cancer.
