The Who: Quadrophenia-Can You See The Real Me? To Air On TV

12/26/2012
.
The Who: Quadrophenia - Can You See The Real Me? is set to air on BBC America on Friday, January 4 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT). We were sent these details:

Originally screened earlier this year as a one-night in-theater event, the documentary takes fans on a riveting ride back to the 1970s when The Who's creative musical genius was taking the world's music stage by storm. The Who: Quadrophenia-Can You See the Real Me gives fans an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look into one of rock's most influential bands and the creation of their celebrated album, Quadrophenia originally released in October 1973.

The Who kicked off their Quadrophenia And More Tour, in early November. The trek features The Who performing their iconic 1973 double album Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with a selection of WHO classics. Founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are being joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), John Corey (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) Reggie Grisham (horns), JG Miller (horns) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals) for the tour.

The 2012-2013 Quadrophenia And More Tour features The Who performing on a sleek, stripped-down stage with 10 musicians on board, a sophisticated lighting rig and multiple screens that provide footage of world events from World War II to the present day, concentrating on popular culture and the history of the band, including live footage from throughout their storied career. The visuals tie in closely to the Quadrophenia album and movie, particularly the themes of disillusionment, teen angst and rebellion, plus social issues--both from the '60s and now--as well as the beach and ocean that are pivotal in Quadrophenia.
