If you’re a fan of The Who and Quadrophenia this new show at the Cresset is one not to miss!
Produced by Concept Concerts, this production, acclaimed by a Sunday Times journalist as ‘Mighty, moving and unstoppable’ sees 8-piece band The Goldhawks, deliver a stunning live performance of The Who’s smash hit concept album, Quadrophenia – receiving standing ovations from the very first show!
Released over 40 years ago in October 1973, The Who’s second rock opera Quadrophenia was Pete Townshend’s homage to a pivotal moment in British youth culture.
The album tells the story of Jimmy, a Mod, chronicling his dissatisfaction with life, work, love, home, and family life.
It served as an ode to teenage angst and counterculture rebellion, as well as a criticism of the British class, economic and educational systems – but you don’t need to be clued up on the history of the Mods and Rockers to enjoy this show because at its core, Quadrophenia, which peaked at No. 2 on the UK and USA charts, is a tale of teenage confusion, conflict and frustration.
Backed with exciting and sometimes heart-wrenching large-screen projections of archival footage; the emotion, tension and raw power that the music demands is delivered masterfully by the fabulous, charismatic band, The Goldhawks, with amazing replication of The Who’s sound.
To send you home on an even bigger high there are a few all-time classic Who hits to close the show!
Catch it live at the Cresset in Bretton on Tuesday September 25.
Tickets are £23.50 from the Cresset box office or on 01733 265705.
