In 2012/2013, The Who embarked on the Quadrophenia and More Tour, performing their landmark rock opera in its entirety, marking the 40th anniversary of the original 1973 release of this double-album masterpiece.

The critically acclaimed and highly successful tour closed at London's Wembley Arena, with the cameras rolling, to record the closing night of this historic anniversary tour.

Filmed on July 8, 2013, QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON features The Who in peak form, performing Quadrophenia from front to back, in its entirety, plus a special set of some of their all-time greatest hits. The film captures the band's dynamic performance in front of their hometown crowd and features blistering performances of 'The Real Me,' 'The Punk And The Godfather,' 'Doctor Jimmy' and a powerful performance of 'Love Reign O'er Me.'

With HD screen backdrops, archival footage and today's advanced technology in sound, QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON reunites The Who with bandmates John Entwistle, for '5:15,' and Keith Moon for his signature song 'Bell Boy.' In addition to their performance of Quadrophenia, the band tear through classic tracks such as 'Pinball Wizard,' 'Who Are You,' 'You Better You Bet,' 'Baba O'Riley,' 'Won't Get Fooled Again' and 'Tea & Theatre,' from their 2006 release Endless Wire,' with the intensity and power only The Who can conjure.

Based around the story of Jimmy ' double-album masterpiece Quadrophenia tells the tale of a young mod and his struggle to come of age in the mid-1960s.

The project was intended to reflect the four characters of The Who and features some of Townshend's most inspired, personal song-writing - way ahead of its time in scope and purpose and is one of the most widely recognised albums of The Whos career because of its classic depiction of mod culture, its renowned imagery and the magnificent music and powerful performances.

Newly envisioned by Roger Daltrey, the concert film combines archival footage of The Who and images of historical events that have rocked Jimmy's world over the past 40 years giving this magnum opus an enlightened modern twist.
