Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
They are one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. For over four decades, they have changed modern music as we know it. But some of their most famous performances have never been released... until now. On December 15, 1977, The Who performed before a select invited audience at the Gaumont State Theatre in Kilburn, North London, to record a concert for Jeff Stein's film, The Kids Are Alright, which turned out to be one of the last live performances by drummer Keith Moon. Shot in 35mm, this holy grail for fans has been digitally restored and remastered in high-definition for the ultimate The Who experience. Take an amazing journey with The Who like you've never seen or heard them before, featuring their greatest hits and hours of incredible footage! It's the rock discovery of the year!
Incredibly awesome preformance but...
This is pure gold! The Who at Kilburn is as amazing as it is powerful, but for all it's worth DO NOT BUY IT FROM iTunes!!!! i cannot stress this enough! buy the real thing: it comes with a whole other concert: The Who at the London Coliseum 1969. A must-have for absolutly anyone who has even HEARD of the Who.
A must own for any Who fan...
This show starts off a little wobbly. Then the foursome pulls it together for a performance that is a must own for anyone that calls themselves a fan of The Who! Roger is spot on with his vocals, Pete's energy is nearly matched by his masterful guitar work, John is stoic and provides a metronome like backbone and then there is the beautiful pounding of Keith as he plays one of his final shows before his untimely death.
Intense and Interesting
A must see! Uneven and utterly inspired all at the same time. The Who, at both the top and bottom of their game all in one performance... utterly brilliant! Watching Pete throughout is hypnotizing. As the performance begins to fail, his joy turns to anger and frustration. Keith is at his best in all respects and seems to be hooked into Pete trying to bring him back. You get a real sense of the dynamics that fueled this monster rock band when watching this, both in the musical sense as well as in the personalities that are in and of themselves very well documented. I'm very happy that this was finally released. It's a completely honest record of the phenomenon of the band known as The Who just before the magic ended. Even on a bad night, this group kicks all other live acts off the stage.
