THE WHO Tickets
The Who are adding a concert at Wembley Arena on July 8th to their 'The Quadrophenia And More' tour, tickets will be available on Aloud.com from 9am on Friday March 15th.
THE WHO have announced an arena tour of the UK and Europe. They will perform their iconic 1973 double album QUADROPHENIA in its entirety, along with a selection of WHO classics.
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.
This is achieved to startling effect. “Quadrophenia and its coming-of-age story unfolded in songs that blended nuance and noise, a spectacle grand and gritty,” writes the Orlando Sentinel.
The UK tour follows hot off the heels of their 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 (The Who’s) boldest and most fully realized albums,” writes Rolling Stone, “but it’s never quite gotten the live show it deserves – until now”.
QUADROPHENIA was The Who’s second rock opera (after Tommy), raising the bar for rock albums as an art form. It hit #2 on the UK album chart and massively influenced the future of UK style, fashion and culture – from Paul Weller to Bradley Wiggins, from Paul Smith to Noel Gallagher.
The album’s title is a variation on the popular usage of the medical diagnostic term schizophrenia and exemplifies the four varying personalities of the original band members. Q magazine placed it on its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever
QUADROPHENIA features such classic WHO songs as “The Real Me,” “5:15” and “Love Reign o’er Me.”
The movie of QUADROPHENIA (1979) has become a cult classic, starring a young Sting, Phil Daniels, Ray Winstone, Trevor Laird and Lesley Ash.
The Who’s tour in the UK ( 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).
