This June, Eagle Rock Entertainment will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Who with the first ever DVD and Blu-ray release of Live At Shea Stadium 1982 [SLP $19.98 Blu-ray, $14.98 DVD, street date June 30, 2015]. This is the first official release of the full show and features restored footage and newly mixed sound.
The Who (Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, and Kenney Jones) delivered both classic tracks and rarely performed songs: “Pinball Wizard,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “My Generation,” “Substitute,” “Who Are You,” “I Can’t Explain,” “See Me Feel Me,” “Baba O’Riley,” and many more. The tour promoted the 1982 album It’s Hard and the set list was comprised of several tracks from that album, some of which the band would only play live on this tour.
The Who’s 1982 North American tour was their last to feature Kenney Jones on drums and the band did not tour again until 1989. This concert film features the show from the second of their two nights at New York City’s Shea Stadium and was filmed on October 13, 1982.
