Today marks the 43rd anniversary of the recording of the Who’s concert at England’s Leeds University. The concert eventually became their first live set, “Live at Leeds.”
- The expanded Live At Leeds was reissued twice on CD — in 1995 and 2001 — each time featuring more songs from the Leeds show from February 14th, 1970 — with the 2001 version including the Who’s full performance of Tommy.
- The new version of the set, which marks the third time the 1970 classic has been expanded and reissued, is now housed in a hard-back box with cover artwork reproducing the original black stamped vinyl first UK pressing.
- Here is the only footage known to exist of the Who’s performing at Leeds University February 14, 1970.
