Legendary British band The Who extended the possibilities of rock 'n' roll to new horizons in the 1960s and 70s. From their iconic 1969 rock opera album Tommy comes a five-time Tony Award-winning musical - a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical experience.

Tommy's traumatic childhood leaves his senses paralysed, but despite being deaf, dumb and blind, the teenager plays a mean pinball game. His extraordinary talent catapults him to international superstardom in this inspiring story of hope, healing, and triumph over adversity.

With music and lyrics by The Who's guitarist and vocalist Pete Townshend, the electrifying and timeless score features smash hits such as 'Pinball Wizard', 'I'm Free' and 'Acid Queen'.

Get ready to rock on with The Who's Tommy as it takes over Melbourne's rock 'n' roll stomping ground with raw energy and music that has the power to shake your soul.

Recommended for mature audiences, ages 15+.
