Pete Townshend told the NME on the double LP's release that he felt that The Who ought to make a last album.
Released in 1969, The Who's 'Tommy' is a masterpiece…a word that is applied to too many recordings, but in this case, it probably doesn't go far enough.
The frontman will perform some Who hits, a selection of rarities and some songs from his solo catalog.
A stay at a Caribbean hotel and a bottle of Roger Daltrey's champagne are among the items on offer.
The last three-track preview has alternate versions of three songs from the studio sessions for the classic 1967 LP.
The cans will be available in a limited edition in aid of the Teen Cancer America, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Magic Breakfast charities.
The first studio record the band made without Moon, 'Face Dances,' entered the American album chart on April 4, 1981.
Additionally, concert streaming platform nugs.net have announced the livestream premiere of the Classic Albums documentary on the album.
Born on April 1, 1946, Ronnie was one of the UK's great treasures, happy both in a group setting, as a collaborator or bandleader.
The track from 'Tommy' became Elton's first UK Top 10 single since another cover, of The Beatles' 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.'
The deluxe edition of the seminal album follows via Polydor/UMC on April 23.
The edition is previewed by Pete Townshend’s previously unreleased demos for the album, available on all streaming services.
In an extensive interview with 'Uncut' magazine, Townshend reveals that he has written 25 new songs.
No new dates have been issued, but the band say that they hope to play again when conditions allow.
'Live At Leeds' was a definitive in-concert album and 'a very valid bit of plastic,' as Roger Daltrey said.
Recorded on February 7, 1969, ‘Pinball Wizard’ was pivotal to the success of ‘Tommy,’ but the single very nearly didn't get recorded.
