In May, the Hull City Hall stage will once again come alive with legendary music this time in a concert production of the ground-breaking concept album Quadrophenia.
Released 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. 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.
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 in this live concert production by the fabulous, The Goldhawks, with amazing replication of The Who’s sound.
Quadrophenia - The Album Live plays Hull City Hall on 2 May 2019.
Tickets for all these shows will be available from 10am on Friday 12 October 2018. Book at the Hull City Hall Box Office, call 01482 300 306 or visit www.hulltheatres.co.uk.
