The Who to release 1982 Shea Stadium show on DVD
The opening act released an album of their set a while ago:
Jones can’t recall why the show was recorded that night, probably because the band was making a video (The video of “Should I Stay or Should I Go” showed the Clash riding an open-topped car from Manhattan to Shea Stadium in Queens, then bursting on to the stage).
The tight 14-song set, with a reprise of “The Magnificent Seven,” was chosen to highlight the band’s best-known songs, with no filler.
“I like the idea that you can hear the four individuals and what they were doing and it gels together as a kind of magic,” he said.
