The Who will finish off their 50th anniversary tour at the end of this year with a concert film called The Who: Live at Hyde Park slated for limited theatrical release.
Filmed in June this year, the movie details the experience of The Who Hits 50! Tour!, which band member Roger Daltrey described as ‘The beginning of the long goodbye.’ It’s billed as their “fourth and possibly final” appearance at Hyde Park, the band announced the news via Facebook.
Performed during summer in front of a 65 000 strong crowd in London’s Hyde Park, the film will include a setlist of all the greatest hits from The Who, such as Whos Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation and Live At Leeds. Footage of the concert is interwoven with interviews from Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Iggy Pop, Robert Plant and Johnny Marr.
The Who first formed in 1964 and went on to sell 100 million records to date. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, as well as appearing in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
