Quadrophenia And More Tour: The Who
The Who round off their sold out UK Quadrophenia And More tour with a special show in aid of the Double O charity at Wembley Arena on July 8th, performing their iconic 1973 double album Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with a selection of Who classics.
The UK tour follows on from a hugely successful North American, tour, praised by press and fans alike as probably the definitive interpretation of Quadrophenia and "a rock 'n' roll lover's dream come true" (Telegram.com, Boston). "Quadrophenia is their boldest and most fully realized albums," writes Rolling Stone, "but it's never quite gotten the live show it deserves – until now."
This new concert version of Quadrophenia, personally directed by Roger Daltrey, focuses on the original album and 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's tour features founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, who will be joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), John Corey (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals).
The Double O charity was established by The Who in 1976 to focus on drug and alcohol damage, domestic violence, sexual abuse, music education, emergency relief for International disasters and young people's prison reform and has donated over £4 million since its inception.
'One of the most enduring and influential rock groups of all time' (Rolling Stone) Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon hit the big time in the mid-60s...and continued hitting it, smashing up their instruments and generally challenging the system for the next 30 years. The deaths of Moon (1978) and Entwhistle (2002) hasn't stopped the band, and Daltry and Townshend - with a little help from their friends - still put on an awesome live show.
