Quadrophenia the album - Live - acclaimed by a Sunday Times journalist as “Mighty, moving and unstoppable,” sees an 8 piece band, The Goldhawks, deliver a stunning live performance of The Who’s smash hit concept album, Quadrophenia.

Released over 40 years ago, The Who’s second rock opera ‘Quadrophenia’ was Pete Townshend’s homage to a pivotal moment in British youth culture.

It served as an ode to teenage angst and counterculture rebellion. At its core, Quadrophenia, which peaked at No. 2 on the UK and USA charts, is about teenage confusion, conflict and frustration. Backed with exciting, and sometimes heart-wrenching, large-screen projection of archival footage, the emotions, tension and raw power are delivered masterfully by the fabulous, charismatic band, The Goldhawks.
