The Goldhawks

February 28 @ 7:30 pm GMT

On Thursday 28 February from 7.30pm at the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil Concept Concerts presents 8 piece band ‘The Goldhawks’. They deliver a stunning live performance of The Who’s smash hit concept album, ‘Quadrophenia’. From the very first show it has received standing ovations. Released over 40 years ago in October 1973, The Who’s second rock opera Quadrophenia was Pete Townshend’s homage to a pivotal moment in British youth culture. The album tells the story of Jimmy, a Mod, by chronicling his dissatisfaction with life, work, love, home, and family life. It served as an ode to teenage angst and counterculture rebellion, as well as a criticism of the British class, economic and educational systems but you don’t need to be clued up on the history of the Mods and Rockers to enjoy this show because at its core, Quadrophenia, which peaked at No. 2 on the UK and USA charts, is just about teenage confusion, conflict and frustration. Tickets £23.
