The Who are one of the most influential rock bands of all time and were at the forefront of the British invasion of bands that conquered the USA in the 60s selling over 100 million records worldwide.
Formed in 1964 they quickly established themselves as part of the pop art and mod movements. Their first single, 'I Can't Explain', was in the UK top ten for thirteen weeks followed by a string of further hit singles including the iconic 'My Generation', 'Substitute' and ‘The Kids Are Alright'.
Following the release of rock opera ‘Tommy’ and subsequent appearances at Woodstock and The Isle of Wight festivals their reputation snowballed into mega stardom. Their live shows were explosive and unpredictable with many memorable performances carved deeply in to the annals of rock music - the album ‘Live at Leeds’ is widely regarded as the best live album ever recorded.
Thus followed albums, ‘Tommy,’ ‘Who’s Next’, ‘Quadrophenia’ and more producing many huge hits and anthems such as ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, ‘Baba O’Riley,’ ‘Pinball Wizard’, ’Who Are You’, and ‘5:15’
Their songs still receive regular exposure in film radio and TV with the top-rating ‘CSI’ television programme using Who songs as theme tunes in every episode!
Featuring The Goldhawks, a band of the finest musicians and the world’s No.1 Roger Daltrey sound-alike, The Who Story is a powerful, high energy concert celebrating the music of the world’s greatest rock band.
Together with an impressive, sometimes poignant - sometimes emotional, huge backdrop film documenting the band’s timeline, this production promises an unforgettable journey through The Who’s awesome catalogue.
"A stunning night of music recreated by The Goldhawks, and whilst you might ask yourself, “Why should I care?”, the answer is simple, because The Who and their music has stood the test of time with honour and Quadrophenia is the living proof of that.”
