The Who want fans memorabilia for 50th anniversary celebrations

The Who have appealed directly to fans to go through their memorabilia for anything rare that could be included in their upcoming Who Hits 50 celebrations.

The band have already confirmed a tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary, and a new hits package due for release in October.

Citing The High Numbers at the Railway Hotel film from 1964 - which was found in a loft in the Netherlands - they are confident there is other undiscovered material out there.

Any item that is used will be fully credited on any release and the person with the most outstanding find will receive 2 VIP tickets for a show on the next Who tour.

If you have any material, contact thewho@umusic.com.

Uncut is now available as a digital edition! Download here on your iPad/iPhone and here on your Kindle Fire or Nook.
