Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend lead today’s Official Chart Update with WHO, the legendary group’s first collection of new material since 2006’s Endless Wire. The Who’s twelfth studio album is ahead of the nearest competition – Robbie Williams’ The Christmas Present (2) – by just under 6,000 chart sales.

The Who’s first and only other UK Number 1 album is Who’s Next, released in September 1971."
Imagine how it would sell if you could actually find it anywhere

Sold out in 5 SECONDS, so a 2nd show on the same day has been added. Mind you, that has probably sold out by now as well!

Check the version

I have seen reports of Tesco having the standard release for £11 and the deluxe release, with three extra songs, for £13

'A Quick One (While He's Away)' from 'The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus', filmed on 11 December 1968

The song, comprising of six movements (Her Man's Gone / Crying Town / We Have a Remedy / Ivor the Engine Driver / Soon Be Home / You Are Forgiven) was the title track of the bands second album, released in 1966. It was Pete's first attempt at a 'rock opera', leading to 'Tommy' three years later in 1969

At time of writing, the standard edition of the new CD is only £6.99 on Amazon UK

Sadly, the deluxe edition is still £12.99

UK Album chart


The last (and previously only) time the band hit the #1 spot was in September 1971 when 'Who's Next' reached the top.

48 years and 3 months is quite a long wait between the two!

It actually only hit #3.

That must have been a midweek chart. They aren't announced until 5.30pm on a Friday. Which was an hour after your post.
