The Who Return To Infamous Leeds
19 Jun 2006
36 years ago this weekend The Who
legendarily got up in front of hundreds of Leeds students and fans for quite possibly the most aurally stunning live performance in history, birthing the now infamous album; Live at Leeds. On June 17th 2006 at 7pm they came back for more.
At a ceremony Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey unveiled a blue Civic Trust plaque in the now world famous Leeds University Refectory to mark the occasion and later played for a packed house fit to bursting with 2000 fans past and present.
Genesis published The Who Live over three years ago, compiled with the help of Ross Halfin
, an amazing archive of pictures it really gets into the feel and energy that simply course through every member of the band.
Fully sold out as you'd expect, but recently and completely by chance a stock re-organisation within Universal Records unearthed some mint copies. We're sure another opportunity like this won't be coming along again so if you want this highly acclaimed volume in your library, now would be a good time to act.
