The Palais Theatre, St Kilda will thunder with the Australian premiere of The Who’s Tommy.

Get ready to rock to this multi-award-winning musical from The Who’s guitarist and vocalist Pete Townshend, and Broadway legend, Des McAnuff, based on the 1969 groundbreaking concept album Tommy.

Be one of the first to experience this electrifying fusion of theatre and rock ’n’ roll. The Who’s Tommy is an inspiring story of hope, healing, and triumph over adversity through our hero’s bewildering gift of pinball wizardry.

In 1969, The Who’s rock opera Tommy changed the trajectory of how music could be incorporated into theatrical works. Tommy put the genre of the concept album on the map, sparked a cultural phenomenon and spawned pop hits galore.

Tommy went on to achieve the rare feat of multiple successful iterations, from rock opera to opera, film to stage spectacular, legendary concept album to award winning musical theatre. 

Popular music has a history of being born in the theatre and The Who’s Tommy proves that innovative, trendsetting music can tell great stories and make gripping theatre.
