The Who Release Video From Classic Quadrophenia Release
The project sees Pete Townshend create a new orchestral version of their 1973 concept album based around lead character Jimmy's search for an identity amongst the mods and rockers in Brighton in the mid-1960s.
Orchestrated by Rachel Fuller, "Classic Quadrophenia" features Townshend and guest vocalists Alfie Boe, Billy Idol and Phil Daniels joined by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Robert Zeigler.
The preview clip of "Love Reign O'er Me" mixes new footage of Boe filmed on the beach at Brighton and intercut with scenes from Franc Roddam's 1978 movie.
"Classic Quadrophenia" will be launched with a world premiere concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on July 5, with Townshend and Boe performing alongside the orchestra and the London Oriana Choir. Check out the video and the album trailer here.
