The Who share Royal Albert Hall performance on The Late Show

The Who shared video of a Royal Albert Hall performance of their 1971 classic, ‘Behind Blue Eyes”, on the April 15 episode of CBS-TV’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The band can be seen delivering the “Who’s Next” single as part of a recent March 25 acoustic set at the iconic UK venue during a week-long series of concerts in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend have long been supporters of the charity, which creates world-class cancer services for young people in the UK, providing life-changing care and support so they don’t have to face cancer alone.

The week-long benefit shows – which began on March with the UK band Don Broco – also featured performances from Madness, Liam Gallagher and Ed Sheeran, among others.

The Who’s appearance on the late night CBS program comes ahead of the launch of the band’s North American tour in Hollywood, FL on April 22.

“The Who Hits Back!” series will see Daltrey and Townshend return to the stage alongside some of the finest orchestras in the U.S. and Canada, under the direction of conductor Keith Levenson.
