A show paying tribute to the smash-hit concept album Quadrophenia is coming to the Grand later this year.

Fans of The Who can look forward to Quadrophenia The Album Live, presented by eight-piece band The Goldhawks and hailed as “mighty, moving and unstoppable”, at the Church Street theatre on Saturday, November 24.

A spokesman for the band said: “Quadrophenia - The Album, Live! pays tribute to the emotive music of The Who, the biggest-selling and most powerful band in the world for decades.

“Produced specifically for the theatre stage and appealing to all generations, it is a storming show with full-on sound effects as used on the original album and state-of-the-art lighting to enhance the performance.”

Released in October 1973, the rock opera was Pete Townshend’s homage to a pivotal moment in British youth culture, chronicling Mod Jimmy’s dissatisfaction with life.

A theatre spokesman added: “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 number two on the UK and USA charts, is just about teenage confusion, conflict and frustration.”

Tickets are on sale now from the Grand Theatre box office by calling 01253 290190 costing from £22.
