in its entirety by The Goldhawks, who give a stunning live performance delivery of
From the very first performance of the show, the band have been receiving standing
ovations and acclaim for their sensational reproduction of the Who’s original sound.
Appealing to generations both young and old, the show contains exciting, and
sometimes heart-wrenching, large-screen projections of archival footage together
with sound effects as performed on the album, all of which supports the show to
enhance and add to the quality of the performance.
This tremendous Mod anthemic album stage performance provides all generations
of Who fans, music aficionados both young and old with a chance to see and hear
the album performed live in its entirety, together with a few other Who classic
numbers thrown in for good measure. A stage performance that’s not to be missed!
Long-standing Who fan Roger Clifford who saw the show in Portsmouth earlier this
month, stated, “I have seen the Who 20+ times since 1969 at the Isle of Wight
festival and The Goldhawks performance was wonderful. They performed just like the
actual Who, absolutely brilliant.”
Another Who fan, Nigel Busch, said, “Great show and a really good night out. The
singer sounds very authentic but most bands that try to do Who songs fail miserably
because the bassist can’t play like Entwistle. This bassist nailed it he’s excellent! Can’t
wait to see this band perform Tommy.”
