Quadrophenia: Live In London by Chris Rule 2

Quadrophenia: Live In London by Chris Rule

In July of 2013, the WHO performed QUADROPHENIA live in its entirety at Wembley Arena. The DVD was released earlier this year to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the band.

The filming of the performance was directed by our very own Chris Rule, 1/2 of Conkerco who was also involved in creating the on-stage visuals and their integration into the film, Collaborating with Roger Daltrey to create an intimate portrayal of the band. The Times Record refers to is as "the best-shot DVD of The Who so far" and esquire describes it as "indeed as intimate as arena rock can get". The visuals of the show were conceived by Daltrey, Rule and a host of collaborators using screens to tell a story of british life  through imagery as diverse as the 2nd world war to the poll tax riots. A compelling way to give an entire new layer to the Quadrophenia story using a distinctly filmic approach to elevate traditional live-event filming .

Shot on Alexa and edited at Assembly Rooms, the DVD reflects the story by blending the screen footage seamlessly into the body of the live performances. Post production was at The Farm and Cherry Cherry.

The DVD was released as a specialist package with additional 'greatest hits' section and full liner notes plus audio recordings from the concerts
