New Live Clash Album And DVD
SonyBMG will release The Clash 'Live at Shea Stadium' album and 'The Clash Live - Revolution Rock' DVD simultaneously on 6th October. Recorded at New York's Shea Stadium in 1982, 'Live at Shea Stadium' captures the band at the peak of its powers and on devastating form. Bristling with energy and attitude, 'Live at Shea Stadium' is destined to feature alongside James Brown at the Apollo, The Who at Leeds and Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison as one of the greatest live recordings of all time. The Clash, opening for The Who on their farewell tour of the US, played two nights at the legendary Shea Stadium (12th & 13th Oct 1982). Recorded by Glyn Johns, the album features the second night's performance in its entirety. Despite being the support act, the New York Post reported 'there were as many Clash fans on those nights as Who fans'. One of the few remaining unreleased Clash treasures, the recordings have long been sought after by fans. The tapes were unearthed by the late Joe Strummer whilst packing for a move.
