The Who to issue ‘Tommy Live at the Royal Albert Hall’ on various formats

The Who‘s performed their rock opera Tommy – live and in its entirety, for the first time – back in April this year, at the Royal Albert Hall. That concert is being issued on DVD and blu-ray with the audio available on CD and vinyl packages.

The performance of the 1969 album was in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend have supported for a very long time. The band have performed Tommy in the past, but crucially they always dropped a handful of tracks. This time it was different and the whole album was performed – and enhanced by specially created animations. After the performance, the band (inevitably) treated the audience to a short set of Who classics!

The audio from this special occasion is being issued on two-CD and three-LP vinyl, while the entire concert is being issued on blu-ray and DVD. Interestingly, there are no audio/video ‘bundles’ or deluxe editions.

Tommy Live at the Royal Albert Hall is being released on 16 October 2017. Expect the inflated Amazon UK price for the 3LP vinyl to drop in line with other vendors soon.
