The Who return to the British stages to perform their Back To The Who Tour. Probably the most influential rock band of all time the band shaped the sound of the 20th century and beyond, having sold well over 100 million records to date.
The band have a reputation for wild shows and riotous antics both on and off the stage. Their hits include My Generation, Substitute, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Who Are You, Pinball Wizard, The Seeker and I Can See For Miles.
Formed in 1964, the band were instrumental in the development of Pop Art and the Mod youth culture. The band pushed the frontiers of popular music and changed the cultural landscape with their 1969 rock opera album Tommy. The record has sold in excess of 20 million copies and is widely recognised as one of the most important albums of all time.
The album was later developed into a psychedelic masterpiece film, directed by Ken Russel, in 1975. The film included a star studded cast including Elton John, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, Jack Nicholson, Oliver Reed and the band themselves. It was also turned into a Broadway musical which was first performed in 1992.
In 1998 the studio album Tommy was inducted into the prestigious Grammy Hall Of Fame for “historical, artistic and significant value
” which cemented its reputation as a truly seminal piece of work.
Recently, The Who have re-imagined the album Tommy for an acoustic based performance which is expected to feature heavily at their upcoming live performances.
Their second rock opera; Quadrophenia was also released originally as an album in 1973 before being made into a movie in 1979.
