VIDEO: The Who preview Tommy Live At The Royal Albert Hall package

The Who are streaming a video preview of the forthcoming package, “Tommy: Live At The Royal Albert Hall”, which will be released in multiple formats on October 13.

The Who performed their 1969 rock opera at the prestigious London venue in its entirety for the very first time in April at an event in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust, the UK charity founded in 1990 to assist youth with support and cancer care.

The “Tommy” show was rounded out with a set of Who classics, also featured in the fall release, which adds bonus behind-the-scenes features like full screen animations of both “The Acid Queen” and “Pinball Wizard” with the accompanying live audio.

A full track list can be found below.

“Tommy: Live At The Royal Albert Hall” will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, 2CD and 3LP.

October will also see The Who issue a 5CD box set of singles entitled “Maximum As & Bs.”

Due October 27, the project compiles all of the band’s A-sides, B-sides and EPs – from the Brunswick, Reaction, Track and Polydor labels – in one place, for the very first time.

The 86-track package traces The Who’s career from their first single, 1964’s “Zoot Suit” – recorded as The High Numbers – to the group’s last recorded track to date, 2014’s “Be Lucky.”

The Who just completed a 6-night residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV as part of a summer North American tour.
