THE WHO, an English rock band formed in 1964, one of rock’s most legendary and defining groups, have just announced a major North American arena tour where they’ll perform their iconic 1973 double album QUADROPHENIA in its entirety, along with a selection of WHO classics. The critically acclaimed QUADROPHENIA marked the British band’s second rock opera (after Tommy), raised the bar for rock albums as an art form and hit #2 on the U.S. Billboard album chart. Founding members ROGER DALTREY and PETE TOWNSHEND will be joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals). In a four-and-a-half star (out of five) review, Rolling Stone’s David Fricke said: ’Quadrophenia, released in 1973, was a superior tale with more-taut songwriting; it was grounded in [Pete] Townshend's memories of growing up angry, anguished and mod in the early Sixties, and produced with the panoramic tension of ‘Who’s Next.’” Quadrophenia marked the band’s sixth album - the title is a variation on the popular usage of the medical diagnostic term schizophrenia and exemplifies the four varying personalities of the band. IGN placed Quadrophenia at No. 1 on its list of the greatest classic rock albums of all time and Q magazine placed Quadrophenia on its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever, It features such classic WHO songs as ’The Real Me,” ’5:15” and ’Love Reign o’er Me.” Ticket Information Tickets are available through Ticketmaster Charge-By-Phone (1-800-745-3000) and ticketmaster.com until 4 hours prior to the start of the event and in-person through Ticketmaster Ticket Centers OR at the Schottenstein Center Ticket Office until the start of the event.
