Eagle Rock EntertainmentThe Who‘s special April 2017 benefit performance of its classic 1969 rock opera Tommy at London’s famous Royal Albert Hall is the focus of new audio and home video releases that hit stores today.

Tommy — Live at the Royal Albert Hall is available on DVD, Blu-ray and digital video, and as a two-CD set, a three-LP package and a digital album.

The concert, which raised money for the U.K.’s Teenage Cancer Trust charity, marked the first time that The Who played Tommy in its entirety.

The performance was enhanced by a multimedia presentation that included specially created animated segments to accompany various tunes. Following the Tommy portion of the show, The Who played a set featuring various other classic tunes, including “Who Are You,” “Love, Reign O’er Me,” “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”

The DVD and Blu-ray contain some bonus features, including a behind-the-scenes featurette, and a look at the animations for “The Acid Queen” and “Pinball Wizard,” synched with the live audio of those songs.

Check out a video of The Who playing “Pinball Wizard” and a trailer for Tommy — Live at the Royal Albert Hall at the band’s official VEVO YouTube channel.
