Clip From Who Concert Film Released

NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 28: The Who's Roger Daltre yand Pete Townsend perform during the Who Cares Benefit For Teen Cancer America Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on February 28, 2013 in New York City.

In anticipation of The Who’s “Quadrophenia:  Live from London” release tomorrow (June 10th),  a preview of the concert film is now streaming.

Appearing on, the clip shows Rodger Daltrey and Pete Townshend performing the album’s title track as a series of dramatic historical footage plays on their stage screen setup.  This clip alone is absolutely stunning, so I can only imagine what the entire film is like.

Quadrophenia is arguably the finest Who album and certainly their most conceptually ambitious success (R.I.P. Lifehouse).  The original double-LP told the story of a restless young man with split personality who gets involved with mod gangs and drugs and ends up literally washed ashore on a rocky island, away from England.  It’s a passionate story backed by great music. 

While I consider The Who’s Woodstock performance of “See Me Feel Me” as one of their finest moments, the new “Quadrophenia” film proves the band can still put on a show.
