The Who are set to begin a two-part North American tour next week, and have appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform an orchestral version of “Behind Blue Eyes”.

Last Friday (April 15), the band were the musical guests on the show and ran through an impassioned version of their 1971 Who’s Next track, backed by a full orchestra.

The performance of “Behind Blue Eyes”, which you can watch in full below, came in support of the Teen Cancer America organization, and was recorded during the band’s annual Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at the Royal Albert Hall in London last month, which featured Yungblud, Liam Gallagher, Ed Sheeran, The Who and more.
