The Who's Pete Townshend to Premiere 'Quadrophenia' Documentary at 500 Theaters on July 24
A new documentary, The Who: Quadrophenia -- Can You See The Real Me? The Story Behind The Album, will premiere as a one-night, in-theater event 8 p.m. (local time) July 24 in 500 theaters across the US.
The film, which starts off with a welcome message from Pete Townshend, revisits events surrounding and including the recording of the band's landmark double album, which was released in October 1973 -- including Keith Moon's onstage collapse during the tour’s first show.
In its original four-and-a-half star review, Rolling Stone described Quadrophenia as a superior tale with more-taut songwriting; it was grounded in [Pete] Townshend's memories of growing up angry, anguished and mod in the early Sixties, and produced with the panoramic tension of Who’s Next."
Fans who attend the in-theater events can order the Quadrophenia: Director’s Cut box set with a free T-shirt at a limited-time price of $99.98. The box features four CDs including two discs of original Townshend demos, 5.1 audio DVD, a hardback book, 7-inch replica and more. The box set is available here.
