Legendary Band The Who To Rock The Lg Arena In June 2013

The Who, one of rock's legendary and defining bands, has announced they will be bringing their UK Tour to the LG Arena in Birmingham.  They'll perform their iconic 1973 double album Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with a selection of Who classics.

The UK tour follows on from a hugely successful North American tour, praised by press and fans alike as probably the definitive interpretation of Quadrophenia and "a rock 'n' roll lover's dream come true" (Telegram.com, Boston). "Quadrophenia is their (The Who's) boldest and most fully realized albums," writes Rolling Stone, "but it's never quite gotten the live show it deserves - until now".

The critically acclaimed Quadrophenia marked the British band's second rock opera (after Tommy), raised the bar for rock albums as an art form, hit #2 on the UK album chart and massively influenced the future of UK style, fashion and culture - from Paul Weller to Bradley Wiggins, from Paul Smith to Noel Gallagher.

This new concert version of Quadrophenia, personally directed by Roger Daltrey, focuses on the original album and replaces the narrative used in previous stage versions with powerful imagery projected on an array of massive screens, designed to support, complement and propel the musical content of the work by setting it in the context of the history of the band.

The Who's tour features founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, who will be joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), John Corey (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals).
