Tommy and Quadrophenia Live : With Special GuestsDVD - 2005
Disc one features a live rendition of their full-blown rock opera about a deaf, dumb, and blind boy. Tommy was performed live in 1989 at The Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, with special guests Elton John, Phil Collins, Billy Idol, Patti LaBelle, and Steve Winwood. Disc two contains the band's second rock opus, this time built around the story of a young mod's struggle to come of age in the mid-60s. This live version of Quadrophenia, from the 1996/1997 U.S. Tour was the first time it was performed as Townshend and Daltrey had visualized it, with live action and featuring a then-unknown Alex Langdon in a spellbinding performance as Jimmy, the disillusioned Mod. Disc three includes "Live Hits" from their second set at Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles in 1989, the Quadrophenia encore from the 1996-97 tour, and from Giants Stadium in New Jersey in 1989, in addition to an interview with Billy Idol.
