The Who – Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 2004 is Out

Share This:

Eagle Rock Entertainment has released The Who Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 2004, on June 2, on a variety of formats (DVD+2CD, Blu-ray+2CD and Digital). (Order it here.)

It’s the first home entertainment release of this performance, which includes updated versions of classic rock hits like “Baba O’Riley,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “You Better You Bet,” “I Can’t Explain,” “Who Are You,” “My Generation,” “Magic Bus” and more. (See the complete track list and watch a clip below.)

In 2004, The Who returned to the Isle Of Wight Festival for the first time since their legendary 1970 performance. After a long absence, the festival had been reborn in 2002 and continues to this day. The Who’s U.K. concerts in 2004 were the first in their home country since the death of founding member / bassist John Entwistle. As the evening shadows lengthened across the festival site, The Who took to the stage and delivered a performance packed with hit singles and classic album tracks like “Drowned” and “Bargain.”

Besides Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, the lineup included The Who’s longtime live band of Simon Townshend (guitars, vocals), Pino Palladino (bass), Zak Starkey (drums) and John “Rabbit” Bundrick (keyboards, piano).

The Who continue to add summer North American tour dates. They announced their first Las Vegas residency earlier this month and have since added a number of U.S. concerts and a Canadian festival appearance for July.

Watch The Who do an acoustic performance of “Naked Eye” from this release…
