    There were two Shea shows. Would like a nice version of “Athena” live.

    This is becoming a bit of a trend in current times. Elton John has been doing this for the last few weeks for his AIDS foundation so I can imagine Roger seeing the benefit of doing it for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

    REM are also screening a show from tonight.

    Anyway, thinking of unreleased shows of The Who, its interesting to think what they could use. Tanglewood '70, Charlton '74, the full Chicago '79?

    I wouldn't mind seeing the recent acoustic shows they did. There's some audience footage floating around - not sure if they professionally filmed the gigs.

    That reminds me- maybe they will include the acoustic 1999 Bridge School concert .

    I am not on Facebook but I am reliably informed that on The Who's FB page someone commented that they have already seen the Shea concert and they received a response saying 'not these 5 tracks you haven't '.

    Not Tanglewood as they don’t own the rights. So maybe Rockpalast 1981, Kampuchea 1979, 1969 IOW, Paris 1972, Stockholm 1972, Cleveland 1975, Detroit 1975, 1977 Shepperton rehearsals, the 3 European shows broadcast from Pete’s site and all those 2000 shows

    The Who may have been forced to delay their 2020 tour plans due to the pandemic,
    but they are trying to make it up to fans by launching Join Together @ Home on
    YouTube
    this weekend. It’s a six-week series that will showcase “live and rarely seen
    footage, mini videos and special screen footage, culminating with a performance from
    a previously unreleased show,” according to a press release.

    The series kicks off on Saturday August 8th at 1:00 pm EST with five songs from The
    Who’s 1982 show at Shea Stadium, a legendary gig from their “farewell” tour that
    featured the Clash as their opening act. It will begin with a “red carpet premiere clip
    from Roger Daltrey.” The videos will be free of charge, but viewers will be encouraged
    to donate to the Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America.

    That would be quite a long series! I don't know if it will follow the same format as Elton's recent series but he only showed 6 concerts.

    Apparently it's only 5 songs? This is like the Stones ones...i like the idea, but the execution is kind of lacking.

    They wouldn't have something unreleased shot on film that would require costly post-production, so I suppose we're stuck with things shot on video, meaning 1975 onward in your list.

    Call me cynical, but I'm prepared to be underwhelmed.

    Such a shame, I'm a long-time fan.

    You are not cynical. It seems unlikely that an unreleased, vintage live show from the 1970's is going to be broadcast. Perhaps they recycle Houston '75 or Kilburn '77, and there is always a chance they could finally present Charlton '74, but I suspect there will be no surprises.

    Are you serious? Read this again:

    mini videos and special screen footage, culminating with a performance
    from a previously unreleased show,” according to a press release.

    I hope I stand corrected. A "previously unreleased" show could be from the multitude of concerts performed over the past few years. I made it clear that I was referring to unreleased, vintage shows from the 1970's. We shall see.

    Maybe Houston 1971? A fan can dream...

    We shall see. I'll note that the quote is "a performance FROM
    a previously unreleased show" and not that it will be an entire
    show. I hoping for a lot, but expectations are quite low.

    the fact that “1982” is used as a selling point is reason enough to be cynical

    I totally expect to be underwhelmed whenever there is anything associated with the official Who website - it’s a total clown show.

    The first Shea show (about an hour) is available on bootleg in good quality with timecode, it includes Athena. This series seems very Meh! We really need the full Charlton '74 show. Oh, and the full Chicago '79 gig, I don't even care if its all in Mono...

    Clown show or not, the first instalment wasn’t just straight from the Shea Stadium DVD, which is what most if us were expecting.
