QUADROPHENIA: THE ALBUM LIVE!
The Cresset, Bretton

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!

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! Tickets £23.50 on 01733 265705.
