''Who Are You'' - A celebration of The Who

Based in Western Massachusetts and touring throughout the Northeast United States, WHO ARE YOU captures the raw energy of a WHO performance, with a spot-on re-creation of Pete Townshend's synthesizer tracks. When you hear WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN, you'll think you are listening to the record - but LIVE!

With songs like MY GENERATION and MAGIC BUS, expect the unexpected. Be it the occasional smashing of a guitar, large chunks of Pete Townshend's brilliant rock operas TOMMY and QUADROPHENIA or the odd WHO "Bside" track, you are guaranteed a memorable night of WHO classics.
