You Am I’s Tim Rogers has gathered his contemporaries to become Captain Walker’s Unborn Children for a complete performance of Pete Townshend’s classic rock opera Tommy this weekend.
The Who released Tommy in 1969. On Friday 21 June, Tim Rogers, Davey Lane, Ash Naylor, Brett Wolfenden, Talei Wolfgramm and Liam McGorry will recreate The Who classic 50 years after its release.
The Who released Tommy on 17 May, 1969. It tells the story of Tommy Walker, born after what is believed to be the death of his father at war. Years later when Mrs Walker has remarried and Captain Walker returns, Captain Walker kills Tommy’s step-father. Tommy witnesses the murder, his mother makes him believe it never happened, thereby shutting down Tommy’s senses. He become the deaf, dumb and blind boy who is then tortured and molested.
Tommy has been performed by The Who, orchestrated with the London Symphony and made into a movie.
