'The Who Sensation: The Story of Tommy' Blu-ray Dated

Posted Thu Feb 27, 2014 at 06:00 AM PST by

The legendary album is explored in depth in this new film heading to Blu-ray in March, and you can pre-order it now.

In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock Entertainment is preparing 'The Who Sensation: The Story of Tommy' for Blu-ray on March 11.

The Who's seminal double album 'Tommy', released in 1969, is a milestone in rock history. It revitalized the band's career and established Pete Townshend as a composer and Roger Daltrey as one of rock's foremost frontmen. The first album to be overtly billed as a 'rock opera', 'Tommy' has gone on to sell over 20 million copies around the world and has been reimagined as both a film by Ken Russell in the mid-seventies and a touring stage production in the early nineties. This new film explores the background, creation and impact of 'Tommy' through new interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, archive interviews with the late John Entwistle, and contributions from engineer Bob Pridden, artwork creator Mike McInnerney plus others involved in the creation of the album and journalists who assess the album's historic and cultural impact.

Specs and supplements have not been detailed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
