A MAGICAL moment in music history with one of the most powerful rock bands of all time will be captured at Rhyl Pavilion next week.

World class eight-piece The Goldhawks are bringing the music of towering mod titans The Who back to the stage in Quadrophenia:The Album Live on Friday, October 12.

Released over 40 years ago, in October 1973, The Who’s second rock opera, Quadrophenia, was guitarist 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 and 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 the show. 

It pays tribute to the emotive music of one of the most enduring bands in the world to this day, with Goldhawks frontman Doug Freeman faithfully recreating the raw power, tension and visceral emotion of Who lead singer Roger Daltrey.

Produced specifically for the stage and appealing to all generations – with full-on sound effects, as used on the original album – and state-of-the-art lighting, the show is backed with exciting, and sometimes heart-wrenching, large-screen projection of archival footage.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £22, with concessions.
