The Who's Live at the Royal Albert Hall will be released in Super Audio CD (SACD) format on Steamhammer Records (a division of SPV Records) on January 6, 2004. The three-CD live set features the soundtrack of the 2001 DVD with two tracks not included on the DVD. The bonus third CD features four tracks recorded live early in 2002, also at the Royal Albert Hall, representing bass guitarist/vocalist John Entwistle's last show with The Who.

The Live at the Royal Albert Hall SACD is packaged in a special Digipak case. The SACD is actually mastered and manufactured as a hybrid, with one layer each of high-quality SACD playback and standard CD playback digital information. Playback on standard CD players is in regular stereo sound whereas playback on SACD players enables the 5.1 surround sound mix.

The four songs on the bonus third CD were recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall on February 8, 2002, at Entwistle's last concert with The Who before his death. Proceeds from the SACD benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust. This organization funds special wards in UK hospitals serving teenage cancer patients and their families.
