The Who are set to re-create their legendary gig at Leeds University tonight (17 June), returning 36 years after the show that was immortalised on the 'Live At Leeds' album.

This gig launches the band's European and US tour.  The Who's remaining original members, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, are due to unveil a commemorative plaque at Leeds University, revealed 6Music. The plaque will commemorate the gig and the venue, which has also seen amazing performances from the likes of Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.

BBC broadcaster Andy Kershaw was a Leeds student, and approached The Who's manager with the idea about the plaque and comeback show.  He said: "The Who's reputation was cemented by that record - it was such a huge landmark for them."
