Released exclusively on the long since discontinued and deleted formats of VHS and LaserDisc, the following has NEVER been released on DVD until NOW!

This REMASTERED DVD is sourced directly from the original high quality LaserDisc to DVD for the first time ever! Quality is unmatched as it transferred from the long since deleted LaserDisc from OVER THIRTY FOUR years ago.

Background: This concert was first released on VHS in UK, France, South Africa and the USA ONLY. The ONLY LaserDiscs of this classic concert were exclusively released in Japan and USA in 1989.

The NTSC Double LaserDisc release from the USA in 1989 is where this REMASTERED DVD is sourced from. Even now the LaserDisc of this concert is only available USED. Still to this day, this vintage concert  has NEVER been officially released here in America in ANY format, not on VHS, not on LaserDisc, not on DVD until NOW! So here it is for the first time ever on DVD for all the Who/Townshend Collectors.

Another original offer from your team at MVR!

    This is amazing!!! My husband has been searching for this concert on DVD and it’s all he wanted for Father’s Day! Thanks for the tears it brought! Keep bringing the joy!!

    I always wanted to see this show on DVD. But it never came out. Because of the remaster from LaserDisc to DVD I was able to enjoy it. The Who were still with John Entwhistle and the guests really make this show great!
