The Who is the focus of an upcoming episode of nugs.net’s Classic Albums documentary series.

The series will focus on The Who’s 1967 album The Who Sell Out in its April 22 episode. The broadcast is scheduled to air that day at 9 p.m. ET. Considered to be among the most influential albums of the 20th century, it sold 100 million copies.

The upcoming documentary will examine closely, what made and makes the album so influential. It will do so through exclusive interviews with Roger Daltry, Pete Townshend and the album’s producers. The episode will stream free through April 25 on nugs.net and through the nugs.net YouTube channel.

The Who Sells Out is a concept album considered by Rolling Stone magazine to be The Who’s “finest album.” It was created to resemble a pirate radio broadcast, complete with fake commercials. The album was born when the band’s label wanted a new album from the band, but Townshend felt he did not have enough material for a full record.

nugs.net’s upcoming broadcast will air in partner with UMe, The Who and Mercury Studios. In coordination with the episode’s upcoming broadcast, The Who has announced it will release a massively expanded edition of the album April 23 through UMe/Polydor. It will feature approximately 112 tracks, 47 of which will be previously unreleased works. The songs will be spread across five discs.

The Super Deluxe edition will also feature a poster and inserts, and even a facsimile eight-page program from the band’s Saville Theatre show. Many other extras are also featured with the expanded package.

Metallica drummer and founding member Lars Ulrich spoke with the media about this weekend’s year-opening concert. In discussing the concert he explained the decision to perform at this weekend’s event and the band’s reason for sharing the concert for free online. “We can’t wait to play our first show of 2016 and there’s nowhere we’d rather kick off the festivities than in our own backyard,” he said. “Even though the show has been sold out for months, Metallica fans around the world will be able to join in on the madness.”

nugs.net founder and CEO Brad Serling also shared his thoughts on the upcoming concert noting the importance of the first-ever HD stream of the band’s performance at its website.

“We’ve released audio recordings of every Metallica show for the past 12 years at LiveMetallica.com,” he said. So naturally we’re excited to deliver the band’s first live HD stream from their hometown on their own website.”

This weekend’s free broadcast from Metallica and nugs.net is not the first online stream from nugs.net. The company has also streamed pay-per-view webcasts of performances from Phish at Madison Square Garden over New Year’s and 2015’s Grateful Dead “Fare Thee Well” shows at Chicago’s Soldier Field.
