Music & Musicals, Classic Rock, Rock & Pop - Recorded in London, this live 2000 concert showcases Pete Townshend, legendary guitarist of the Who, performing music from his experimental piece "Lifehouse," which he began composing in the early 1970s and spent almost 30 years trying to complete. Townshend's pet project was born out of his belief that mankind has lost touch with spirituality and neglected social contact with the advent of technology.
A Celebration: The Music of Pete Townshend and The Who, also known as Daltrey Sings Townshend, is a music event and later album documenting a two-night concert at Carnegie Hall in 1994. It broke Carnegie Hall's two day box office gross record, and was the fastest sell-out in the historic venue's history. The concert also raised money for Columbia Presbyterian Babies Hospital. This event was produced by Richard Flanzer and Roger Daltrey of English rock band The Who in celebration of his fiftieth birthday. The Who's music was arranged for orchestra by Michael Kamen, who directed The Juilliard Orchestra for the event. Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, Eddie Vedder, Sinéad O'Connor, Lou Reed, David Sanborn, Alice Cooper, Linda Perry, The Chieftains and others performed as special guests.
