The Who 2016 New Main

This date is rescheduled from 7 September to 3 April 2017.
Tickets for the show originally scheduled for 7 September will be valid for the new show on 3 April 2017.

 

THE WHO TO PREMIERE A NEW ACOUSTIC PRESENTATION OF ‘TOMMY’

The Band announces first full performance of the classic Rock Opera since 1989.

New dates of the  shows have been announced including Echo Arena Liverpool, where the band will play the opera in full followed by a selection of other great Who songs.

For the rescheduled Greatest Hits shows Roger and Pete will play the hits as well as some lesser known Who songs and also include a new focused presentation of Tommy drawn from the Royal Albert Hall concerts including a brand new video programme specially produced for these shows. 

This UK set will emulate the historic period around Live At Leeds and Woodstock when the central pivot of The Who’s show was always their performance of Tommy. For Who fans new and old this is something special that hasn’t been done by the band or seen by their audience since 1970. 

 

 

 Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult. 

Ticket limit of 6 per person.

 

Most shows have some form of flashing lights, strobes or pyrotechnics. Signage will be displayed advising customers of the details, if you have a condition that is directly affected by any of these please contact us, via the feedback option on the Echo Arena homepage before the performance and we can give you more details.
