Live At Acton Town Hall

Live At Acton Town Hall is live recording by Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros, released as a Record Store Day exclusive in 2012 on a limited number of 2200 copies on 2 LP vinyl. The concert, a benefit for striking firefighters, was originally recorded on 15 November 2002 at Acton Town Hall in London, and features one of the final live performances by Strummer (the last live show being in Liverpool on 22 November 2002), who died due to a heart condition on 22 December 2002. The performance features songs Strummer recorded with The Clash along with songs from Strummer's albums for Hellcat Records including new written songs such as "Coma Girl" and "Get Down Moses" that eventually would appear on Strummer's posthumous album, Streetcore. The highlight of the performance features a reunion with Strummer's former bandmate from The Clash, Mick Jones for the first time in almost twenty years.[1][2]

The live album was also made available as part of a 57 song digital download-only collection titled Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros: The Hellcat Years.
