“I’m remembering distant memories/ Recalling other names”

The WHo DVDIn 2012/2013, The Who embarked on the Quadrophenia and More Tour, performing their landmark rock opera in its entirety. This marked the 40th anniversary the release of the Who’s 1973 double-album masterpiece. The critically acclaimed and highly successful tour wrapped up at London’s Wembley Arena, with cameras recording the closing night. Filmed on July 8, 2013, Quadrophenia: Live in London features Roger, Pete and the rest of The Who in peak form.

That night, The Who delivered powerful renditions of “The Real Me,” “The Punk And The Godfather,” “Doctor Jimmy” and “Love Reign O’er Me.” And, through the use of HD screen backdrops, archival footage and today’s advanced technology in sound, the band “reunites” with deceased bandmates John Entwistle, for “5:15,” and Keith Moon for his signature song “Bell Boy.”

The Who also played some of their all-time greatest hits, tearing through classics like  “Pinball Wizard,“ “Who Are You,” “You Better You Bet,” and “Baba O’Riley.”
