Eight-piece band, The Goldhawks will be presenting a live performance of The Who’s smash hit concept album, Quadrophenia at the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn on Saturday 26 January. From the very first concert, this show has received standing ovations.
Released more than 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, by 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 just about teenage confusion, conflict and frustration.
Produced by Concept Concerts this production, acclaimed by a Sunday Times journalist as “Mighty, moving and unstoppable,”
Backed with exciting, and sometimes heart-wrenching, large-screen projection of archival footage, the emotions, 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 everyone home on an even bigger high there are a few all-time classic Who hits to close the show.
