In 1982, the Clash were on tour in America, promoting their Combat Rock album. Performance footage in this video was recorded on October 13th, 1982, when the band opened for the Who at New York's Shea Stadium amid falling rain and wild jeering from Who fans:

If they hadn't split The Who would have supported them in later years.
