Tanglewood Announces New Concert

June 7th, 2017, 7:30 am by Greg

One of Tanglewood’s all-time most memorable rock shows took place back in 1970, when the Who bashed out a howling rendition of their classic rock opera “Tommy.”

This summer the Who’s guitarist Pete Townshend returns to the Lenox shed to perform “Classic Quadrophenia,” a rock-meets-orchestral rendition of 1973’s “Quadrophenia,” the Who’s other great rock opera. Townshend will be joined by Billy Idol, tenor Alfie Boe and Keith Lockhart conducting the Boston Pops Orchestra.
