An electrifying fusion of theatre and rock ’n’ roll, the Australian premiere of The Who's Tommy is set to blow the roof off Melbourne's rock 'n' roll stomping ground, St Kilda's Palais Theatre.
In 1969, The Who's rock opera concept album, Tommy, was a ground-breaking success that sold over 20 million copies and revolutionised how rock'n'roll fused with theatrical works like film, opera and musicals.
The story of Tommy follows our hero's traumatic childhood which leaves his senses paralysed but with a bewildering gift at pinball wizardry. It's this talent that catapults him to international superstardom in an inspiring story of hope, healing, and triumph over adversity.
The Who's Tommy is a multi-award-winning musical of raw energy and smash hits. Featuring a powerhouse soundtrack with music and lyrics by The Who’s guitarist and vocalist Pete Townshend, get ready to rock with numbers like ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘I’m Free’ and ‘Acid Queen’.
Be one of the first to experience this true sensation!
