We Are Sony Legacy

This day in The Clash history…

October 13, 2015

October 13th 1982, The Clash played at the legendary Shea Stadium, opening for The Who on their farewell tour of the US. 

‘Live at Shea Stadium’ captures the band at the peak of its powers and on devastating form. Bristling with energy and attitude, it 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.

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.

Give it a listen now!
