Editorial Reviews

In 2012/2013, The Who embarked on the Quadrophenia and More Tour, performing their landmark rock opera in its entirety, marking the 40th anniversary of the original 1973 release of this double-album masterpiece. The critically acclaimed and highly successful tour closed at London's Wembley Arena, with the cameras rolling, to record the closing night of this historic anniversary tour.
Filmed on July 8, 2013, QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON Blu-rayTM features The Who in peak form, performing Quadrophenia from front to back, in its entirety, plus a special set of some of their all-time greatest hits. The film captures the band's dynamic performance in front of their hometown crowd and features blistering performances of 'The Real Me', 'The Punk And The Godfather', 'Doctor Jimmy' and a powerful performance of 'Love Reign O'er Me'. With HD screen backdrops, archival footage and today's advanced technology in sound, QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON reunites The Who with bandmates John Entwistle, for '5:15', and Keith Moon for his signature song 'Bell Boy'. In addition to their performance of Quadrophenia, the band tear through classic tracks such as 'Pinball Wizard', 'Who Are You', 'You Better You Bet' 'Baba O'Riley' 'Won't Get Fooled Again' and 'Tea & Theatre', from their 2006 release 'Endless Wire', with the intensity and power only The Who can conjure.

Format:DVD
The Who's 1973 album has had an interesting history. Upon its release, it was performed only a little until equipment malfunctions convinced the band to stop trying to reproduce the album's rich sound on stage. Seemingly left alone for the next few decades, it re-emerged in the mid-90s as a performed-in-its-entirety show, complete with keyboardists, brass players, and narration from "Jimmy Cooper" himself. Now it is 2014, and the world has a new recording of another incarnation of Quadrophenia.

Unlike the '70s and '90s shows, this one does not attempt to explicitly tell Quadrophenia's story. It's just the songs themselves, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey not offering any banter in between them. There also seems to be more of a retrospective look at the Who themselves, which is interesting considering the fact that Quadrophenia originally evolved out of a defunct project (called Rock Is Dead - Long Live Rock) that was meant to be an autobiographical look at the band. Images of Roger, Pete, John Entwistle and Keith Moon continually flash up on the giant video screens. Much has been said of the Ox's and the Loon's inclusions in "5:15" and "Bell Boy" respectively, but also noteworthy (just one example) is "The Punk and the Godfather," in which we see footage of the High Numbers give way to a broadcast of the band performing on Top of the Pops. If you know the lyrics (and Roger's vocals from the studio album get played at the same time Roger '13 is singing at one point) you probably know what I'm getting at.

Of course, the music itself is a treat to hear. Some of my personal highlights:
-The sheer sonic energy of the whole band in "5:15.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is 5 Stars and its not even close! June 4, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Who went on Tourto perform their 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia, which tells the story of a Mod named Jimmy living in England in the mid 1960s. The band of course is only with two of their original members, lead singer Roger Daltrey, and lead guitarist and primary song writer Pete Townshend. Filling the shoes of diseased bassist and drummer John Entwistle and Keith Moon were Pino Palladino on bass, and Scott Devours on Drums. Those two have been touring with the band for the past few years, and they both did a good job filling the big shoes they had to fill. Pete's younger brother Simon Townshend was also there as a second guitarist and had lead vocals on the song Dirty Jobs. Despite being in their late 60s, Townshend and Daltrey still had all their old moves on stage, Pete did a several windmills on the guitar, and Roger did his signature microphone twirl, he also sported his classic look of wearing an unbuttoned shirt and is to be in good shape. Taking advantage of modern technology, they band was able to use video screens to add to their performance and represent John Entwistle by playing a video of one of his bass solos on the song 5:15. They did the same for Keith Moon by playing a video of him singing the song Bell Boy from one of their Charlton Concert of 1974. It was a nice way to pay tribute to their former members. Once the band concluded Quadrophenia with a powerful rendition of Love Reign O'er Me, Townshend took on the roll of leader and introduced the lesser known members of the band as well as the supporting members. He then said it was time for some "classic symphony music" as the band broke out into a bunch of their hits which included, Baba O'Riley, Behind Blue Eyes, Who Are You, Pinball Wizard, and Won't Get Fooled Again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Performances But Iffy Sound June 9, 2014
Format:DVD
Firstly thanks to Amazon for delivering a day ahead of the official release.

I was at this and the other London shows last summer and have been waiting for the official release to replace the bootlegs that were out within days. The performances by Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey and the backing musicians are excellent throughout. Just listen to the vocals on Love Reign O'er Me and be amazed by what Daltrey can still do and how he is defying his age. Thankfully some of the other songs have now been transposed to lower keys so that he can hit the high notes full on without struggling and I wish that they had done this years ago. Scott Devours deserves special mention for stepping in for the injured Zak Starkey, who, to be honest, isn't really missed as his dep is that good. Simon Townshend works his socks off in the guitar bi-play with his older brother and puts in a great lead vocal on The Dirty Jobs. They even manage to cover most of John Entwistle's brass overdubs with a combination of samples and two live horn players. This produces a fuller sound than you might imagine. The visuals on the back projections are superb and all credit to Daltrey and his design team for creating them and for bringing John Entwistle and Keith Moon into the show so creatively.

The performances and the staging are great and merit the 5 stars, but, for me, there are gripes concerning the production of the DVD. Surprisingly, the mix is quite patchy with the vocals up too far and with a poor low end. At times Pino Palladino can't be heard at all and, even though he plays in a far more orthodox style than Entwistle, the bass end was a key feature of the album and it is lacking.

It's true The Who isn't the same without Keith Moon and John Entwistle. But I can tell you that the energy that Daltrey and Townshend still possess makes up for their absence. Read more

Does this include the 5.1 Studio Version as well
The 5.1 remix of the studio album is only found in the Deluxe release, which, besides the blu-ray, a DVD, CD of the Concert, does contain the 5.1 remix of the original album. Mine arrived on Tuesday. Blown away by the great quality found on the Blu-Ray. Excellent job.
