The Who bring Quadrophenia to UK
New focus: Townshend and Daltrey
The Who will bring their live version of classic album Quadrophenia to the UK in June.
The 10 arena shows will include a performance of the full 1973 double-album plus a number of the band’s other classic tracks.
Guitarist Pete Townshend and frontman Roger Daltrey are joined by Zak Starkey, Pino Palladino, Simon Townhsend, John Corey, Loren Gold and Frank Simes in a stage show directed by Daltrey.
The band explain: “This new concert version of Quadrophenia focuses on the original album. It replaces the narrative used in previous stage versions with powerful imagery projected on an array of massive screens, designed to support, complement and propel the musical content of the work by setting it in the context of the history of the band.”
The Who will also play in Paris and Amsterdam in July.
