Performed live at The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus and filmed on 11 December 1968 at InterTel (VTR Services), Stonebridge Park, Wembley. Look out for Keith Moon hurling his side tom drum across the stage at 4’26”. The Who’s performance was deemed to be the best of all the artists who appeared that night. Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg and produced by Sandy Lieberson.
Recorded before a live audience in London in 1968, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus was originally conceived as a BBC-TV special. Directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, it centers on the original line up of The Rolling Stones – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman (with Nicky Hopkins and Rocky Dijon) – who serves as both the show’s hosts and featured attraction. For the first time in front of an audience, “The World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band” performs six Stones classics. The program also includes extraordinary performances by The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Yoko Ono, and The Dirty Mac. A ‘supergroup’ before the term had even been coined, the band was comprised of Eric Clapton (lead guitar), Keith Richards (bass), Mitch Mitchell of The Jimi Hendrix Experience (drums), and John Lennon on guitar and vocals.
The Who’s new studio album WHO is released on 6 December 2019.
