The Who to Release Tommy: Live at the Royal Albert Hall - October 13, 2017

By , Contributor
Eagle Rock Entertainment has a treat in store for fans of The Who with Tommy - Live At The Royal Albert Hall, arriving on multiple formats October 13, 2017. The concert, recorded in April 2017, will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, double-CD, and triple-LP. The concert is centered on a performance of their classic album Tommy in its entirety—a first in the band's illustrious history (seven non-Tommy songs are included as well).

As pointed out by Eagle Rock in their press notes, The Who had performed Tommy nearly in its entirety in years past. But those occasions always saw the omission of two, three, or four tunes from the album. This Royal Albert Hall show, a benefit for the Teenage Cancer Trust, presented the whole enchilada, along with "specially created animations on a huge screen above the stage and creative use of lighting."

The video formats of Tommy - Live At The Royal Albert Hall also include a behind-the-scenes featurette, plus full screen animations of both "The Acid Queen" and "Pinball Wizard" with the live performance audio.
