The Who’s ‘Live in Hyde Park’ Is Coming Out on CD and Blu-ray
The Who's Live in Hyde Park will make its way to the home market later this month.
As previously reported, the concert documentary — which captured the last U.K. stop on the band's ongoing 50th anniversary tour — had a limited theatrical engagement in October, treating viewers to a look back at the June 26, 2015, concert supplemented with additional behind-the-scenes footage. "Come and experience (or relive!) all the greatest hits on the big screen," invited a press release. "Plus Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Iggy Pop, Robert Plant, Johnny Marr and others share their stories of the band’s history and influence as legendary pioneers of British rock."
Due Nov. 20, the home version of Live in Hyde Park is being made available in a variety of formats, including vinyl and digital as well as CD combo packs that bundle the audio alongside video footage on DVD or Blu-ray. It all adds up to a commemorative package that distributor Eagle Vision promises will send Who fans "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."
Live in Hyde Park is available for pre-order now, and is set to arrive during an unplanned lull in the band's farewell tour — after Daltrey was diagnosed with viral meningitis, they were forced to reschedule an entire leg of U.S. dates for early next year. Current plans call for the Who to return to the road in late February.
