Following their astounding hit tour of Quadrophenia - The Album, LIVE! fabulous world-class band, The Goldhawks, performs 'TOMMY' in its entirety as a 10-piece outfit backed with amazing projection and effects with accurate replication of The Who's sound. Tommy is the fourth studio album by The Who, a double album first released in May 1969. The album was a ground-breaking moment in rock history as a rock opera which tells the story about a "deaf, dumb and blind" boy, including his experiences with life and his relationship with his family. The huge, world-wide success of this seminal rock opera saw it transposed into other media, including a classical opera production, an orchestral version by Lou Reizner, the Oscar nominated film by Ken Russell and a West End/Broadway musical. The original album has sold over 20 million copies and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. "Absolutely first class.....Having toured with The Who for 10 years I can safely say that this band is the next best thing and the closest you will ever get to the real thing." Wolfy Foxlow, close friend of Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey To close the show, be ready for some all-time classic Who hits you won't want to miss.
