Last week, The Who began an archival streaming series, with Join Together @ Home working as a concerted effort to entertain fans and raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America — both organizations very near and dear to the band‘s heart.

The second upload in the series will stream on YouTube this Saturday, Aug. 15, and it’s a good one: The Who’s monumental headlining performance at Hyde Park in London, circa 2015. It’s the same concert that was released on a live CD/DVD/Blu-ray — click here to grab a copy from our Rock Cellar Store.

The show itself will go up on the band’s YouTube channel at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT this Saturday, Aug. 15:

 

In launching their own six-part YouTube archival series for charity, the Who joins Elton John, who debuted a similar project recently — and his Classic Concert Series has been a prime source of streaming entertainment.

For more on the Who, be sure to check out our feature interview with Daltrey, discussing the band’s 2019 album WHO, the concept of “getting old” and the band’s triumphant recent world touring activity. A snippet:

“There’s no Who song that’s easy. There is no such thing as an easy Who song to sing; okay, maybe “Squeeze Box.”

We’ve done some concerts where people come up and sing Who songs when we’re celebrating the music of The Who and they always come up afterwards and say to me, “How the fuck do you do this for two hours?”

They can’t believe how difficult the songs are to sing because they’re all lyrics and there’s very few solos. If there were ten-minute solos I wouldn’t know what to do, I would have been bored with it.”
