      A New View of The Who in '82

      My introduction to The Who's '82 tour was via the Who's Last live album, and if you've heard that album you know it leaves a lot to be desired. The sound quality and performances are strangely lacking. This Shea Stadium release offers a fresh glimpse of the tour and rights many of the wrongs of Who's Last. You'll discover The Who really did have an energy at this stage in their career. The setlist is also quite enjoyable, featuring many lesser known songs that were sadly dropped from the Who's Last album. The audio mix for Shea is simple but effective. Entwistle is on the left speaker, Pete is on the right, Roger is in the middle. Kenney may be a little low in the mix but the upside is you hear more of John and Pete. The video has been carefully restored and frankly looks much better than I expected for footage shot on video (not film) in 1982. Another reviewer criticized the video as "VHS quality at best." Rest assured, VHS never looked as good as Shea on BluRay. Just keep in mind this was shot in 1982 and you won't be disappointed. This is a worthy addition to any collection. After 33 years, it's about time we had such a fine document of the 1982 tour. Let's see more! (Waiting patiently for Charlton 1974 and Tanglewood 1970).

      The First (and best) "Farewell Tour"

      The release of "Live at Shea Stadium, 1982" adds a missing piece to the puzzle that is The Who after the death of original drummer Keith Moon. Touring behind "It's Hard", the band with Kenny Jones on drums, play with a sense of purpose and energy lacking on later recordings from the late 80's and beyond. More than an oldies act, they have something to prove. Newly unearthed from the vaults, this DVD looks and sound great. Highly recommended!!!

      This concert was shot during the Who's first last tour. The sonics are excellent, the performances a bit ... distracted. No Keith Moon means that Roger and Pete are forever looking over their shoulders for shenanigans that never occur. For many years, this was the last chance to hear Entwhistle; he plays his part well. The songs are well played, well filmed and well recorded. Kenny Jones acquits himself well; he's just not Moon.

      Although it's a older concert, most evident by the lackluster stage show lights of the classic rock days. It definitely has all the songs a true WHO fan wants to ear. Definitely a good buy, even though the video copy was not the best transfer. I think it's the original filming's fault, not the Blu-ray disc.

      Well produced concert of The Who in rare early 1980's, promoting It's Hard album. Last show for drummer Kenny Jones, and lost concert for 7 years. Rare song tracks as well (25 +3 bonus from 1st night's concert) - Tattoo, Naked Eye, A Man Is a Man, Twist and Shout. A Must for The Who and Classic Rock fans.

      This is a great and historic concert of the Who. it was during their "final" tour and included drummer Kenny Jones. They are still young and in their power and Townshend and Daultrey perform with much bravado and passion. Great for the casual Who fan, a must for the dedicated fan!

      Latter-day Who for the synthesizer-weary

      This is a good value on post-Keith Moon Who for those of us who aren't interested in any albums that follow Quadrophenia. Lots of later songs interspersed with our old favorites. But LIVE, with less electronic effects to dampen the band's amazing energy. (Still sad to not have Moon, though.)

      Band in fine form, energized by unique English setting. All the hits across their 50 year performance career. Must have for a Who fan, great current day representation for those discovering the Band.
