In early August, 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.

We’ve reached the end of the streaming series, as the second in a two-part finale will stream on YouTube this Saturday, Sept. 12. It’ll be another batch of performances from Piazza Grande in Locarno, Switzerland circa 2006, continuing the first portion of performances shared last weekend.

Here’s Roger Daltrey:

The show will begin at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT on Saturday, Sept. 12 on the Who YouTube channel:

And here was the first half of the two-part finale:

It’s been a great series of archival uploads from the band, for two fantastic causes.

Join Together @ Home is free to view, but fans are encouraged to donate to co-beneficiaries Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America  – directly via the link provided on the YouTube page or at www.join-together.org

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

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.”
