The Who (including Keith Moon) play UK's biggest festival.
on 13 November 2000
A fitting visual testament to the absolute power of a unique British band forever dogged by an overwhelming sense of their own history.
From the very moment they open with Entwistle's "Heaven and Hell", through their ritual demolition of "I can't Explain", "Young man blues", a lot of "Tommy" and other crowd - pleasers such as "Magic bus", "Summertime blues" and "My generation", the band ROAR to frequent, repeated musical climaxes in a way that only The Who can. For those of us too young to have been there, this release is an absolute blessing.
Roger Daltrey's voice (and microphone twirling) are at a peak, so is Townshend's guitar playing amd Moon's (kit-thrown-down-the-stairs)drumming. John Entwistle - the REAL lead guitarist with The Who shines throughout.
On this release, the original line-up of the band slay 600,000 people, plus all of us TV viewers, in an utterly mesmerising performance that cannot be recommended too highly.
All you musicians out there who think you are really something will be humbled by this! Buy it and learn. This band has - and continues to - influence the world
