The Who Launch 'Join Together @ Home' Series Today on Youtube

The Who have announced a six part weekly series of releases on Youtube that will feature key performances over the years, some of which has never been released before.

This is all part of YouTube’s #StayHome campaign and will be called “Join Together @ Home” on the band’s official YouTube channel starting today, this Saturday at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm UK.

Each featurette will include "live and rarely seen footage, mini videos, and special screen footage, culminating with a performance from a previously unreleased show", according to the band. 

Today's first installment will feature five live tracks from The Who’s 1982 Shea Stadium, New York show. This will be introduced with an exclusive ‘red carpet’ premiere clip from Roger Daltrey.

“Join Together @ Home” is free to view, but fans are encouraged to donate to co-beneficiaries The Teenage Cancer Trust and Teen Cancer America  directly via the link provided on the YouTube page and www.join-together.org

As a patron of both charities, Roger Daltrey has raised awareness and funds to help support young people with cancer, both in the UK and the US and has been the driving force behind Teenage Cancer Trust’s comedy and music shows, held at the Royal Albert Hall for the last 20 years.

Here's some more information about these charities and the need that they face right now:

Teenage Cancer Trust has always had incredible support from the music industry and relies on donations but due to Coronavirus, saw essential income generating activity, like the Royal Albert Halls shows, cancelled. With income estimated to drop by as much as half this year; the charity needs to raise £5m to maintain frontline services so events like “Join Together @ Home” are more important than ever.

With Teen Cancer America fundraising events also cancelled, they face a shortfall and need your help more than ever. Your donation can help to continue improving the lives and outcomes of teens and young adults with cancer. Nearly 90,000 adolescents and young adults face a cancer diagnosis every year in America, and every hour another young life is lost. The Coronavirus is not just impacting fundraising, but increasing the risks for immunocompromised cancer patients, and adding to the growing burden of hospitals and caregivers.
