TOMMY – LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL

On 13 October 2017, Eagle Rock Entertainment release TOMMY – LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL by The Who on DVD, Blu-ray, 2-CD, 3-LP, Digital Video and Digital Audio. This unbelievable concert film captures the first ever live performance by The Who of TOMMY in its entirety and boasts over two hours and twenty minutes of content. The show includes all time classics like ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘I’m Free’, ‘Amazing Journey’, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’, ‘I Can’t Explain’, ‘Who Are You’, ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, ‘I Can See For Miles’ and many more!

In April 2017 The Who took to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall to perform their rock opera TOMMY live in its entirety for the first time in their long and illustrious career. Previous Who live shows had always dropped two, three or four songs from the album but for this show in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust the band would perform every song. With specially created animations on a huge screen above the stage and creative use of lighting the concert told the story of the “deaf, dumb and blind kid who sure played a mean pinball.” In addition, at the end of TOMMY, the sell-out crowd were treated to a short set of Who classics. Always a great live band, this performance was a thrilling ride from start to finish.

As well as the incredible full show, we also include some great bonus features. There is a behind the scenes featurette, plus also full screen animations of both The Acid Queen and Pinball Wizard with the live performance audio.

  2. The Who says:

    Not quite its entirety, Ralph. Two songs were omitted – ‘Underture’ and ‘Welcome’.

  3. John D. Skinner says:

    With all due respect to Keith Moon, the drummer on this concert was fantastic

    1. The Who says:

      John, that is Zak Starkey. Good eh?

  4. Nancy Bonham says:

    I just viewed this concert on Amazon Video singing along joyfully, when I realized toward the end that the eleven-year-old me was singing this 50 years ago in my bedroom, and I was overcome with emotion. I could barely croak out the finale – my voice gave way to sobs. Flawless performance, gentlemen. In the 4 billion years Earth has existed I feel so fortunate to share my time with you all.

  5. Anne love says:

    I saw The Who perform Tommy live at the Belfry in 1969 on a blind date with my now husband of 50 years. Just watching the 2017 show on TV now. Brilliant and in such a good cause too

  6. Roland Wood says:

    Just got Tommy on Sky Arts. Brings back the past to my teen days and The Who doing Tommy at the Civic Hall, Wolverhampton. The days of raw music – still fantastic.

  7. Ann says:

    Should be as he was taught by Keith Moon

  8. Eddie Hammond says:

    He talked about drums with Keith sometimes, but “never say at a set” with Keith.

    He is Ringo Starr’s son, so he did spend a good bit of time with Keith while he was young,but was t “taught by Keith.

  9. John says:

    You may have been thinking about Kenny Jones teaching Starkey. That did happen.

  10. Rick Ketley says:

    Zak Starkey is as near as they’ll get to Keith Moon but Zak can also keep a beat.
