This Spring comes the chance to see one of the greatest live bands of all time bring their epic live

show to the big screen with The Who: Live in Hyde Park, arriving in cinemas around the world

from October 7th for a limited time only.

Filmed in June this year, this is a chance for fans young and old to experience the phenomenal

finale of The Who Hits 50! Tour which Roger Daltrey described as “The beginning of the long

goodbye.” The legendary pioneers of British rock celebrate their 50th anniversary with this

stunning show, performed on a glorious summer evening in front of a 65,000 strong crowd in

London’s Hyde Park.

The cinema event features a definitive setlist of all the greatest hits as The Who take their

audience on an ʻAmazing Journeyʼ through their entire career from classic albums such as Who’s

Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation and Live At Leeds up to the present day. From the

opening Can't Explain, the film is a rocking roller coaster through their greatest songs: ‘Who Are

You’, ‘My Generation’, ‘I Can See For Miles’, ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘See Me Feel Me’, ‘Baba O’Riley’

and ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’ and more.

Woven in with the concert footage, the film also includes interviews with Pete Townshend and

Roger Daltrey, plus Iggy Pop, Robert Plant, Johnny Marr and more. Cinema audiences will also

enjoy an exclusive featurette of extended interviews.

It was a few miles west of Hyde Park that 50 years ago Townshend, Daltrey and the late Keith

Moon and John Entwistle created the soundtrack for the capital's original Mod scene - playing

adrenaline (and more) fuelled vignettes of aspiring working class teenage life. It is the band's

ability to still thrill five decades later which makes this film essential big screen viewing.

Formed in 1964, The Who now have over 100 million record sales to date, are recipients of

Lifetime Achievement Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in

1990. Seven Who albums appear in Rolling Stone’s ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time’.

The release will be brought to screens by leading Event Cinema distributor Arts Alliance.

Screening for a short time only, it bucks traditional film rollout convention, creating a unique

cinematic event to be shared by audiences around the world.

Pete Townshend on playing Hyde Park:

‘It’s a good gig. You draw from all over the country but a London crowd is always a good crowd'

'It's a Royal Park so thank you your majesty, you can’t play it without her permission'
