CLASSIC QUADROPHENIA US TOUR

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 6, 2017) The Who’s Pete Townshend is transporting Classic Quadrophenia to U.S. audiences this September for a series of four special performances featuring music legends Pete Townshend, Billy Idol, and acclaimed tenor Alfie Boe. Townshend conceptualized an experience unlike any other by blending The Who’s timeless album Quadrophenia with orchestral accompaniment. The London world premiere at Royal Albert Hall electrified audiences and will now be replicated in Lenox, MA, New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA only! The extraordinary musical journey kicks off September 2 in Lenox with the Boston Pops Orchestra and conductor Keith Lockhart. The New York and Los Angeles performances will be led by conductor Robert Ziegler, and the LA show on September 16 will support Teen Cancer America with a portion of proceeds going to the charity.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing Classic Quadrophenia stateside through the month of September,” Townshend said. “Melding the contrasting sounds of Quadrophenia with a symphony has been a really unique and powerful way to reach a wide audience of classical and pop music lovers alike. I couldn’t be more excited to see it continue in the U.S.”

The Who’s historic rock opera Quadrophenia was originally released as an extensive double album in 1973 and has stood the test of time as a conceptual work honoring the Mod movement. The album, later turned into a feature film and theatrical production, follows an angst-ridden young man in London who creates a new life for himself as a member of the Mods.
