The Who to premiere a new presentation of ‘Tommy’ and reschedule UK dates to 2017

To celebrate the 100th show performed  for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, The Who will play two shows featuring new acoustic presentations of Pete Townshend’s classic Rock Opera ‘TOMMY’.

The shows will take place at the iconic London venue on Thursday March 30th and Saturday April 1st, 2017 where the band will play the opera in full – for the first time in almost 30 years.

The Who

The five UK dates that were scheduled for August /September 2016, originally billed as ‘Greatest Hits’ shows, have been moved to 2017 to coincide with the Royal Albert Hall dates and will call in at Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Sheffield and Birmingham. All dates and remaining tickets can be found here.

Longstanding Teenage Cancer Trust Honorary Patron, Roger Daltrey CBE, has been the driving force behind the TCT gigs at the Royal Albert Hall. The shows are the charity’s flagship annual fundraiser raising millions to provide specialist care for young people with cancer – The Who headlined the very first show for them at the Royal Albert Hall in 2000.
