Quadrophenia the Album - LIVE

QUADROPHENIA - the album, LIVE!  back by popular demand, returns to Shanklin Theatre during the IOW International Scooter Rally.  This show received a monumental standing ovation on its premiere in 2018.  World Class band, Goldhawks, deliver a stunning live performance of The Who's smash hit rock opera album, Quadrophenia backed with exciting, and sometimes heart-wrenching, largescreen projection of archival footage, the emotions, tensions and raw power that the music demands is delivered masterfully by this fabulous, charismatic band with amazing replication of the The Who's polished, latter day sound.  Released 49 years ago in October 1973, The Who's second rock opera "Quadrophenia! was Pete Townsend's homage to a pivotal moment in British youth culture.  It served as an ode to teenage agnst 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 nn a history of 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 frustraion.

  "Sublime rock opera perfection.  Mighty, moving and unstoppable.  Sunday Times " Last time I reviewed this show they got a rare 5 out of 5 stars.
