The Who News

Two classic London concerts that The Who put on are going to be released as DVDs this September. The performances take place at the Coliseum in 1969 and Kilburn in 1977. Both are, of course, during the Keith Moon era. I don’t know much about the Kilburn one, but I have heard that the Coliseum show is awesome!

In even better news, Roger Daltrey is planning on launching a second unit for teenage cancer patients in Glasgow, Scotland. The first one opened in May 2007. For more on the story click this. Daltrey is a patron for Teenage Cancer Trust. The proceeds from The Who's annual shows at the Royal Albert Hall go to the foundation. This year I've read they are trying to get the surviving members of the Sex Pistols to also perform at the concerts.
