This Autumn comes the chance to see one of the greatest live bands of all time bring their epic live show to the big screen with The Who: Live in Hyde Park, arriving in cinemas around the world from October 7th for a limited time only.
Filmed in June this year, this is a chance for fans young and old to experience the phenomenal finale of The Who Hits 50! Tour which Roger Daltrey described as “The beginning of the long goodbye.” The legendary pioneers of British rock celebrate their 50th anniversary with this stunning show, performed on a glorious summer evening in front of a 65,000 strong crowd in London’s Hyde Park.
The cinema event features a definitive setlist of all the greatest hits as The Who take their audience on an ʻAmazing Journeyʼ through their entire career from classic albums such as Who’s Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation and Live At Leeds up to the present day. From the opening Can’t Explain, the film is a rocking roller coaster through their greatest songs: ‘Who Are You’, ‘My Generation’, ‘I Can See For Miles’, ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘See Me Feel Me’, ‘Baba O’Riley’ and ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’ and more.
Woven in with the concert footage, the film also includes interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, plus Iggy Pop, Robert Plant, Johnny Marr and more. Cinema audiences will also enjoy an exclusive featurette of extended interviews
It was a few miles west of Hyde Park that 50 years ago Townshend, Daltrey and the late Keith Moon and John Entwistle created the soundtrack for the capital’s original Mod scene – playing adrenaline (and more) fuelled vignettes of aspiring working class teenage life. It is the band’s ability to still thrill five decades later which makes this film essential big screen viewing.
The Who: Live in Hyde Park is set for release on October 7th.
