Tommy - Live At The Royal Albert Hall
On 1st April 2017, The Who took to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall to deliver a blistering performance of their legendary rock opera, Tommy. Written by Pete Townshend almost 50 years ago, the full length piece had, until then, never been performed live by the band. In a rare treat for fans, The Who decided to perform Tommy for the first time ever in its entirety for their participation in the annual Teenage Cancer Trust benefit shows. These shows are produced every year by Roger Daltrey at the iconic Royal Albert Hall to raise essential funds for the specialist treatment of young people with cancer.
Our 2 hour film goes from the rehearsal studios in London and on to the stage, where Tommy is performed flawlessly by Roger, Pete and the band. A greatest hits section comprises the second part of the film, including "Who Are You", "Love, Reign O’er Me" and "Won’t Get Fooled Again". Bonus materials include original screen visuals for the stage performance, as well as a short film examining the relationship between Roger Daltrey and Teenage Cancer Trust.
