Eagle Rock Entertainment is honored to release an historic set of music
with The Who's legendary concert performance Live At The Isle of Wight
on DVD on August 10, 2004. Supported with a nationwide theatrical
premiere at Regal Entertainment Group movie theaters across the country
on August 9th, the concert event will also be broadcast in high definition
on INHD later in the month, beginning August 14th.

The DVD is available for the first time in DTS audio and features the
original Who lineup and an exclusive 40-minute interview with Who
guitarist, Pete Townshend. Under the expert supervision of Townshend
and Murray Lerner, the film's director, this epic concert film has been
completely remastered, remixed and restored to an astonishing degree.
Original negatives and reversal rolls were used to convert the film to HD,
and the audio was remixed using a total of 16 tracks recorded at the
festival.

The concert film also includes a performance of The Who's top-selling
rock opera, "Tommy," and some of the band's most popular songs
including "Eyesight To The Blind Boy," "The Acid Queen," "We're Not
Gonna Take It" and "Fiddle About."

The exclusive in-theater premiere event will include a special 10 minute
cut of the revealing interview with band guitarist Pete Townshend, as well
as an in-theater-only introductory segment by Academy Award winning
filmmaker Murray Lerner. The Who - Live At The Isle of Wight will premier
in 49 select Regal Cinemas, United Artists Theaters and Edwards Theaters
nationwide on Monday, August 9th.

On August 30, 1970, a total of 600,000 people gathered for the last of
three consecutive annual music festivals at the Isle of Wight to see rock 'n'
roll legends The Who perform what would be one of their most
memorable concerts to date. Starting at 2 a.m., this small island off the
coast of England exploded with cheers as The Who took the stage,
clapping to the long-awaited classic hits including "Water," "Magic Bus,"
Heaven And Hell," "I Can't Explain," Pinball Wizard," I'm Free," and many
more.

The Guinness Book of Records recorded this event as the largest
gathering ever of human beings. Band members Roger Daltrey (vocals),
John Entwistle (bass), Keith Moon (drums) and Pete Townshend (guitar)
pounded out seven of their most popular songs, plus 13 additional songs
from their rock opera "Tommy," created in 1969 and later turned into a
hit Broadway musical in 1993.

The live performance ended at 5 a.m. with Moon destroying his drum set
and Townshend smashing his electric guitar. In the history of rock, The
Who once again proved to be the greatest live act around.

Talking IOW Festivals - I think the following is even better news than the Who's performance being released on DVD. The documentary of te fetsival (1970 or 71??) shown on TV a few years back, suggested the Davis line-up was a who's who of jazz rock players!
