You Am I To Perform The Who’s Tommy

You Am I will cover the classic The Who rock opera ‘Tommy’ in July and August.

Joining You Am I on stage for the event are Sarah McLeod and Hayley Mary.

You Am I front man Tim Rogers enthuses, “A preposterous proposition of pomp power n pithiness to be performed by our pop group with pals. We promise to plunder deep and perform in full plumage with no panache, just passions. Prost!”

Hayley Mary explains, “I’m so excited to perform one of rock’s most influential albums, by one of the world’s most revered bands, with some of Australia’s finest musicians! ‘Tommy’ is like ‘A Clockwork Orange’ meets ‘Almost Famous’ in album form; a dark eccentric and cutting critique of fatherlessness and fame and that rings truer now than ever. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into the disturbing themes and help bring some of these colourful characters to life across the country.”

Sarah McLeod is equally excited, saying “I have always loved You Am I, they are a killer band with such swagger, I’ve always wanted to play with them . We’ve talked about all sorts of collaborations for years but playing Tommy in its entirety takes the cake, this is going to be so epic!”
