The classic rock band, The Who, have recently released a live recording of their iconic 1971 hit “Baba O’Riley.” The video was captured during the group’s 2019 performance at Wembley Stadium in London, where they were accompanied by the Isobel Griffiths Orchestra.
This new version of “Baba O’Riley,” originally featured on the band’s “Who’s Next” album, has been made available just 14 days after The Who announced their summer tour in the United Kingdom. The track will be included on the upcoming album “The Who With Orchestra Live At Wembley,” which is scheduled to be released on March 31.
In July, the group has scheduled nine performances starting on July 6 at the Sewell Group Craven Park in Hull, and concluding on July 23 at The 1st Central County Ground in Brighton. The band had previously announced four shows in continental Europe in December. For each concert, a complete orchestra will be accompanying the band. The complete schedule is listed below.
“Having not toured the UK for six years, it’s great that at this time of our careers we have the chance to go to places that are not on the usual touring map Edinburgh Castle and Derby, as well as the other cities across the country that we haven’t been to for decades, will make this very special for me,” says Roger Daltre, the Who’s frontman. “This opportunity will give our UK Who fans the chance to hear our current show, which, with the addition of an orchestra, takes our music to new heights.”
The orchestra of Isobel Griffiths has collaborated before with famous musicians such as Eric Clapton, Nick Cave, Ozzy Osbourne, Biffy Clyro, and Paul McCartney.
