He was a member of the pop rock group Zoot from 1969 to 1971, then started his solo career with his debut single “Speak to the Sky” reaching the top 10 in Australia in mid-1972, when he moved to the United States. He had a No. 1 hit with “Jessie’s Girl” in 1981 in both Australia and the U.S., for which he received the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. He followed with four more top 10 U.S. hits, “I’ve Done Everything for You”, “Don’t Talk to Strangers”, “Affair of the Heart” and “Love Somebody”.

Thursday 10pm: Feature LP: The Who – Tommy Live at The Royal Albert Hall (2017)

On 13 October 2017, Eagle Rock Entertainment release TOMMY – LIVE AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL by The Who on DVD, Blu-ray, 2-CD, 3-LP, Digital Video and Digital Audio. This unbelievable concert film captures the first ever live performance by The Who of TOMMY in its entirety and boasts over two hours and twenty minutes of content. The show includes all time classics like ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘I’m Free’, ‘Amazing Journey’, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’, ‘I Can’t Explain’, ‘Who Are You’, ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, ‘I Can See For Miles’ and many more!

In April 2017 The Who took to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall to perform their rock opera TOMMY live in its entirety for the first time in their long and illustrious career. Previous Who live shows had always dropped two, three or four songs from the album but for this show in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust the band would perform every song. With specially created animations on a huge screen above the stage and creative use of lighting the concert told the story of the “deaf, dumb and blind kid who sure played a mean pinball.” In addition, at the end of TOMMY, the sell-out crowd were treated to a short set of Who classics. Always a great live band, this performance was a thrilling ride from start to finish.

As well as the incredible full show, we also include some great bonus features. There is a behind the scenes featurette, plus also full screen animations of both The Acid Queen and Pinball Wizard with the live performance audio.
