Sheffield-bound: Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend

Originally scheduled for September 3, the April 10 gig will see survivors Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend play chart-toppers as well as lesser known back catalogue, including new focused presentation of Tommy (Can You Hear Me? 1969 video reprised here) drawn from Royal Albert Hall concerts and video programme specially produced for the concert.

This UK set will emulate the historic period around Live At Leeds and Woodstock when the central pivot of The Who’s show was always their performance of Tommy. For Who fans new and old this is something special that hasn’t been done by the band or seen by their audience since 1970.
