The Who’s classic rock opera Tommy will be performed at Memo Music Hall in its entirety in June.

The ‘Tommy’ band will feature Tim Rogers and Davey Lane of You Am I, Ashley Naylor, Talei Wolfgramm, Brett Wolfenden and Laim McGorry. Together they will be known as Captain Walker’s Unborn Children, a reference to a core character British Army Captain Walker, believed to be missing at the start of the opera.

According to Tom Rogers this will be ‘No theatrics, no script, just Tommy in its entirety.’

‘Tommy’ was The Who’s fourth album. It was released as a double album on 23 May 1969. The Who performed sections of ‘Tommy’ at the original Woodstock in 1969.
