In sync with its release, The Who are streaming their latest album, The Who With Orchestra Live At Wembley.
The package that was recently released was recorded on July 6, 2019, during the Who’s first headlining show at the famed London venue in 40 years. The concert has them performing classic songs from their albums like Quadrophenia, Tommy, Who’s Next, Who Are You and more backed by a 50-piece orchestra.
Singer Roger Daltrey had always been wanting for the band to perform with an orchestra. He said in 2019:
“Just because it is The Who with an orchestra, in no way does it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music.
“It is full throttle Who with horns and bells on.”
Talking about what to expect on the 2019 Moving On! tour, Pete Townshend stated at that time:
“Roger christened this tour Moving On! I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose.”
The Who With Orchestra Live at Wembley will be available in multiple formats, including a limited edition yellow, orange, and red 3LP set, triple black vinyl, and a 2CD/Blu-Ray set which features the audio remixed in Dolby Atmos; in addition, all formats feature a booklet with unseen photos from the show.
Meanwhile, The Who will be back on the road in June for The Who Hits Back! tour.
