“If you weren’t at Woodstock or the Isle of Wight Festivals at the end of the ’60s don’t fret,” said a spokesperson for the band.

“Now is your chance to witness the phenomenal rock opera Tommy from The Who, played live by world-class international band The Goldhawks.”

“Tommy was first released as a double album in 1969 by Decca Records and introduced The Who to a new level of superstardom.

“The album was composed by guitarist Pete Townshend and tells the story of Tommy Walker, a deaf, dumb and blind boy, and the trials he faces growing up, before becoming a Pinball Wizard.

“Featuring hits including ‘The Acid Queen’, ‘I’m Free’ and ‘See Me Feel Me’, the album was a huge critical success and (including its re-releases) it has spent an incredible 126 weeks in the Billboard charts.”

The Goldhawks’ frontman Doug Freeman is a renowned recording artist in his own right and faithfully recreates Roger Daltrey’s amazing vocals live on stage.
