The Who chronology

Join Together is a box set of live material released from The Who's 1989 25th Anniversary Tour. Several of the tracks were recorded at Radio City Music Hall, New York, and at Universal Amphitheatre, Los Angeles, with the rest from various other concerts during the tour.[1]

The live rendition of Tommy (1969) was compiled from two charity shows, on 27 June at New York City's Radio City Music Hall and on 24 August at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. Songs from disc two originated from 6 concerts (verified by comparison with audience recordings from the tour).

It was released in 1990 by Virgin Records in the UK and MCA Records in the US. The album was released in the US as a vinyl three LP set in March 1990, where it reached #180 in the US charts. It was also released on cassette tape, and later released on MCA as a two-CD set. The box set included a full colour booklet including credits and pictures from the tour, and was dedicated to Keith Moon.
