In other news of The Who, a DVD was recently released that depicts their 1977 performance in Kilburn, North London. The concert was performed to record music for the movie The Kids are Alright. It was also one of Kieth Moon's last performances. Also included on the new DVD is the 1969 London Coliseum performance that is a favorite of the band. Who fans finally get to see all of this in The Who At Kilburn.
