Formed in 1964 in Shepherd's Bush, (a suburb of London) England, The Who quickly climbed the rock charts and became one of the premiere rock bands of all time. The Who sold nearly 100 million albums. 17 top ten albums, 18 Gold, 12 Platinum and 5 Multi-Platinum album awards in the U.S. alone. Albums such as Tommy, Quadrophenia, Who's Next, Who Are You and others firmly planted The Who in Rock and Roll lore.

Singer Brody Dolyniuk and conductor Brent Havens lead the band and orchestra through a classic night of The Who performed as you've never heard it before, with a rock band and full orchestra! It's a night of Rock and Roll that you won't want to miss.
