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.

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.

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.

I saw this show at the Verizon in Washington. It was a amazin show. For me the most moving scenes was seen John Entwistle playing in 5:15 and Keith Moon sing during Bell Boy. How could they play if they are dead ? Using old vintage films and recording of a old show and with tecnology driven presition, introducing them during each one of the before mentioned songs. My only regret, is the "and more" part of the show, features the same overplayed songs.

Great, loved it. It's hard for The Who to do wrong with anything in my book. I have seen them live twice including the 30 year Quadrophenia concert in San Jose, CA. That concert was much different with Gary Glitter, Billy Idol, and others signing parts.
This Live in London concert keeps you engaged the entire time with great video screens, additional sounds, etc.The audience on the floor is standing entire show. Bass solo is done on screen with John Entwistle while the drummer, Scott Devours plays live, Keith Moon does the Bell Boy vocals on screen, awesome for both. 5.1 sound is great with the bulk of music coming from front as if you where at concert but enough in the surrounds to let you feel immersed, great job. When Quadrophenia is done, the concert ends, then you can go to bonus tracks for some additional songs that are great.
Pete Townsend, I don't know, can anybody play the guitar like that, maybe the best rock guitarist ever.
Slight negative: The cameras focus a little too much on Daltrey and Townsend. Never shows close up of bass player, piano solo shows hands only, drummer you see a little bit more as he is behind Daltrey, horn and additional keyboards breifley, first solo by Simon Townsend you only see his hands. If I was at the concert, any concert, I would be looking at all musicians.
Thanks to The Who, glad to have purchased this concert video.

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.
