LANDMARK PERFORMANCES ON DVD & BLU-RAY
FINALLY RELEASED FROM THE VAULT ON NOVEMBER 18
FROM IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT;
PETE TOWNSHEND AND ROGER DALTREY TO RECEIVE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS AT KENNEDY CENTER HONORS
Chatsworth, Calif. (September 15, 2008)- One of the greatest rock bands of all time, The Who defined modern music for the past four decades. Now after years of anticipation, some of their most unforgettable moments can finally be experienced with THE WHO: AT KILBURN: 1977, releasing on a two-disc DVD and single-disc Blu-Ray set November 18 from Image Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DISK).
Newly mastered in high-definition with state-of-the-art sound for a spectacular home theater experience, the December 15, 1977 Kilburn show at the Gaumont State Theater in North London was recorded before a select audience for Jeff Stein's hit film about The Who, The Kids Are Alright, but only a few brief selections of what would prove to be legendary drummer KEITH MOON's public swan song were ever seen in the finished feature. Captured on 35mm with six cameras and a 16-track audio recorder, the complete Kilburn show features Moon and the rest of the band's classic line-up--singer ROGER DALTREY, guitarist/singer PETE TOWNSHEND, and bassist JOHN ENTWISTLE--in top form with many of their biggest hits.
In other WHO news, it was recently announced that TOWNSHEND and DALTREY will be given lifetime achievement awards at the Kennedy Center Honors on December 7, along with Morgan Freeman, George Jones, Barbra Streisand and Twyla Tharp.
Also included in this release is another never-before-seen show and one of the band's favorites, their 1969 London Coliseum performance, which comes with a wealth of additional bonus tracks and boasts the first-ever full live recording of their groundbreaking rock opera, Tommy. With a total of 29 classic The Who songs, this pivotal release has long been at the top of rock fans' wish lists and has been regarded as a lost "holy grail" for followers of The Who since Moon's passing. This release will occur in conjunction with major, high-profile airings of the Kilburn show as a Fall 2007 pledge drive title with heavy promotion on PBS.
Currently on tour through November 2008, THE WHO have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the UK Music Hall of Fame and won the first annual Freddie Mercury Lifetime Achievement in Live Music Award and a GRAMMY® Foundation award for creative contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording. Their albums Tommy, My Generation and Who's Next have been inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame.
