The Who
Live At Shea Stadium 1982”

On 29 June 2015, Eagle Rock Entertainment release “Live At Shea Stadium 1982” by The Who on DVD and SDBlu-ray [Cat Nos EREDV1184 and ERSDB3021 respectively].  The set list on this amazing show features both classic tracks and rarely performed songs and includes: “Pinball Wizard”, “Won’t Get Fooled Again”, “My Generation”, “Substitute”, “Who Are You”, “I Can’t Explain”, “See Me Feel Me”, “Baba O’Riley” and many more.  Although a couple of tracks have appeared on compilations, this is the first official release of the full show and features restored footage and newly mixed sound.
The Who’s 1982 tour, which was all in North America apart from two warm-up dates at the Birmingham NEC in England, was their last to feature Kenney Jones on drums and the band did not tour again until 1989. The tour promoted the recent “It’s Hard” album, which had been released in June 1982, and the set list included a number of tracks from that album, some of which the band would only play live on this tour. This concert film features the show from the second of their two nights at New York’s Shea Stadium and was filmed on October 13th 1982.

2015 is a year of even higher profile than usual for this legendary band - with their 50th Anniversary show taking place in London’s Hyde Park – and “Live At Shea Stadium 1982” shows exactly what their reputation has been built on.
