As rain fell on a near-capacity audience at New York City’s Shea Stadium, Clash road manager Kosmo Vinyl took the mic and whipped the crowd to crescendo as the band took the stage. With frontman Joe Strummer announcing “Welcome to the Casbah Club,” the Clash launched into the powerful opening guitar refrain of “London Calling” and made history. Recorded while on the road supporting their fifth album, 1982’s Combat Rock, THE CLASH LIVE AT SHEA STADIUM captures the British rock commando unit at the peak of its powers. Bristling with energy and attitude, LIVE AT SHEA STADIUM is set to take its place 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.
