The Who launch "Quadrophenia and More" tour

November 8, 2012

imgThe Who kicked off their “Quadrophenia And More” tour last week in Sunrise, Florida, unveiling a new stage set and fast-paced video footage to accompany their iconic 1973 double album Quadrophenia, which is being performed in its entirety along with a selection of Who classics. 
 
The Who are performing on a sleek, stripped-down stage with 10 musicians on board, a sophisticated lighting rig and multiple screens that provide footage of world events from World War II to the present day, concentrating on popular culture and  the history of the band, including live footage from throughout their storied career. The visuals tie in closely to the Quadrophenia album and movie, particularly the themes of disillusionment, teen angst and rebellion, plus social issues—both from the '60s and now—as well as the beach and ocean that are pivotal in Quadrophenia.
 

On the “Quadrophenia And More” tour the band--including founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend--are being joined on tour by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), John Corey (keyboards/backing vocals), Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals), and Loren Gold (keyboards). They’ll embark on a second leg January 28, 2013 in Anaheim, CA.

The AEG Live-promoted 37-date tour, the band’s first North American tour in four years, kicked off November 1 in Sunrise, FL with an initial six-week run. Tickets for the tour are available at www.aeglive.com
