Look who's getting into the weekly online concert broadcast game - The Who!  

 

 

The band has decided to dust off their archival concert footage and offer them to us for free weekly online viewing.  

 

Their “Join Together @ Home” offerings will occur over the next six weeks, starting Saturday, Aug. 8 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.  The first installment will include live clips from their 1982 New York City show at Shea Stadium  plus “an exclusive ‘red carpet’ premiere clip from Roger Daltrey”

 

The Who - Live At Shea Stadium 1982

 

 

The band will ask viewers to support their charitable partners - the Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America - throughout the stream.  

 

 

The band says: 

 

 “As you have faced the inconvenience of isolation these past months, please think of the many teenage cancer patients who are in the fight of their lives. Follow your local guidelines, stay safe, relax and watch The Who, and do one of the most important things you can do today, donate to help teens facing cancer ... If you can’t donate to both charities just choose the one that’s closest to your heart. But whatever you do please make sure you donate.”

 

The show's can be viewed on the band’s official YouTube page .
