THE WHO LIVE AT SHEA STADIUM 1982
The Who’s 1982 tour, which was all in North America apart from two warm-up dates at the Birmingham NEC in England, was their last to feature Kenney Jones on drums and the band did not tour again until 1989. The tour promoted the recent IT’S HARD album, which had been released in June 1982, and the set list included a number of tracks from that album, some of which the band would only play live on this tour. This concert film features the show from the second of their two nights at New York’s Shea Stadium and was filmed on 13 October 1982.

Never mind about 1982, are there any as yet undiscovered concerts from 71,73,75,76 tours that can be given the treatment and released. The kids of today are probably wondering what all the fuss is about when it comes to The who, but anyone who were there will know, when they hit the stage it was like a bomb going off.
Never mind the above 1982 show? Why not? If you are a huge fan like myself and judging by the above review and the track listing it will be an amazing journey, can’t wait for it’s release and to have Kenny Jones too is a bonus.
This show features one of Pete Townshend’s best ever guitar solos. It’s during “The Quiet One” and I’m thrilled to finally have it on Blu-ray. It’s a bonus track on the reissue of Face Dances and it’s on Youtube in very low picture quality (thanks to me), but that’s it. Can’t wait to see the whole show! Now we just need the Who Rocks America concert released on Blu-ray in its entirety so we can have that stellar performance of “Cry If You Want.”
I was at that show, front row five rows back center, can’t wait to buy this !!
Yes it was a life experience being in that wide open stadium wind blowing large jets flying over which are silenced by the music .. it was so loud- perfect beautiful night on that open form. I was seating center upper nose bleed section one row from the top! The music was still extremely loud you would never know about the two major airports were around the corner. Best concert ever.. !!
I was there ! Who opened for The Who ?
Joe Sampson: There were no rows. It was general admission on the floor; standing room only.
The Clash and David Johansson, also known as Buster Poindexter.
I was there as well for both shows6
