Legendary frontman Roger Daltrey has announced a one-night only performance of The Who's Tommy with The New York Pops symphony orchestra and a band of seasoned Who players.
Tickets will be available to the public on Friday, February 9, at 10 a.m. EST. Go here to buy tickets.
Forest Hills Stadium is conveniently located just steps from the E, M, F, R subway trains at Forest Hills-71st Ave as well as the Forest Hills Long Island Rail Road station. The June 17 performance is the fourth announcement of the stadium’s 2018 season, see calendar attached. Additional events will be announced soon.
Daltrey first graced Forest Hills Stadium’s historic stage in the summer of 1971. Still celebrating the massive success of Tommy, The Who descended on Forest Hills for a blistering, sold-out, two-night stand that the New York Times described as, “Quite good,” appropriately noting that, “Most of the words were indecipherable, lost in the notorious volume that characterizes The Who.”
Like those iconic performances, fans can expect to hear beloved classics from the 1969 rock opera, including “Pinball Wizard,” “See Me, Feel Me” and more – this time backed up by one of the world’s foremost pop orchestras.
Most recently, The Who celebrated their 50th anniversary on The Who Hits 50! Tour, which kicked off the stadium’s 2015 season-opening weekend and saw the bands return to the venue after over 45 years.
