The Who's Tommy
After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother's
lover by his father following the Second World War, young Tommy is so
traumatized that he loses his ability to speak or to care about life. As he
grows he suffers abuse from sadistic relatives and neighbours. As an
adolescent, he’s discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball,
and becomes such an expert at the game that he rises to the stature of an
international superstar and inspires youth around the world.
The Who's Tommy - is based on the The Who's 1969 double rock opera
Tommy and is presented in Guelph with some of the best local musicians
recreating the classic sound of The Who.
The Rock Opera Tommy, which
was first performed by The Who in 1969, was originally conceived by Peter
Townshend and Kit Lambert with contributions to the development by John
Entwistle, Keith Moon and Roger Daltrey.
