Eagle Rock Entertainment has just released what some Who fans might consider the holy grail… “The WHO: LIVE at Shea Stadium 1982.”
Recorded LIVE on October 13th 1982 during the last leg of their U.S. farewell tour the band cranks out a 25 song setlist of classics, deep album cuts and songs from their then current LP “It’s Hard.”
Highlights of the show include Roger’s powerful vocals, John’s rock solid bass, Pete’s pissed off scowl throughout and the often overlooked drumming of Keith Moon replacement Kenney Jones. I loved seeing a whole concert performed with Jones who was truly a powerhouse performer in his own right.
The Blu-Ray comes with an 8-page booklet and includes 5 bonus tracks from the band’s October 12th performance. Boasting restored footage and newly remixed sound, “The WHO: LIVE at Shea Stadium 1982” is something any fan of The Who will definitely want to own.
Drumroll please… 9 out of 10 drumsticks!!!
