Review

In April 2017 the Who took to the stage at the Albert Hall to perform their 1969 rock opera live in its entirety for the first time. Aided by animations as well as Roger Daltrey’s trademark mic-swinging and Pete Townshend’s windmill arms, it tells the story of the deaf, dumb and blind kid who sure played a mean pinball.

It was supposed to have been an acoustic set but Townshend decided it didn’t “sound big enough”, so they cranked out the sort of powerhouse performance we’ve come to expect from the legendary rockers. Tommy, can you hear me? Oh yes, I think we can.

Summary

A concert from 2017 in which the band perform their rock opera Tommy in its entirety for the first time, with tracks including The Acid Queen and Pinball Wizard.
