About The Who
From their wild beginnings when they smashed their instruments to pieces onstage (a gimmick copied by Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana, amongst others) to their cult albums, films, and rock operas, The Who has consistently demonstrated originality in an unoriginal music world. Refusing to simply churn out any old rubbish, they have remained entrenched in an Old School groove which has seen little in the way of studio releases since the album It's Hard in 1982. 2006's Endless Wire was the first thing we saw from The Who since then, making The Who @@year concert tour a spectacle not to be missed!
We expect these passes to be snapped up fast as each new date is added to The Who concert schedule @@year. These are the guys who told the story of warring Mods and Rockers on Britain's beaches, and they introduced Tommy, the Pinball Wizard in their groundbreaking rock opera, Tommy. The Who told the story of a young boy's spiritual journey and dramatic life. The intensity and absurdity of the titular character's experiences mirror the intensity of The Who's stage performances. The lyrics to Tommy echo the hyperbolic attitudes of the band in their earlier years: "We need more room/ Build an extension/ A colourful palace/ Spare no expense now." These guys have blended musical genres like no other before or since.
The Who created a culture of loud, electric, uninhibited rock n' roll. Best known for pioneering musical styles such as the rock opera, the power chord, and just plain high volume sound, The Who were serious rock stars in an age of big bands and Elvis. From "My Generation" and "Squeeze Box" to "The Kids Are Alright" and "We Won't Get Fooled Again," The Who made some of the most popular rock songs in history.
Fun Fact: The Rolling Stones considered calling themselves The Who in their early days.
