No Brighton date for The Who
1:50pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
It was the soundtrack to the film that made a Brighton alley world famous but a tour marking the 40th anniversary of the Quadrophenia album will not be stopping in the seaside location it helped make famous.
Rockers The Who have announced details of a ten-date tour of their classic Quadrophenia album later this year but mods in the city have been left disappointed that they won’t be able to see them in Brighton.
The band will play in Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, London, Sheffield, Newcastle, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham and Liverpool in June and July.
Their sixth studio album was turned into a film in 1979 with scenes filmed in Brighton and Eastbourne.
Sandy Moo, the organiser of Brighton-based Aces High Scooter Club, said: “It’s a shame they won’t be playing here because Brighton is obviously so synonymous with the film.
"I guess there isn’t really anywhere they could play down here but it is a shame because it would be incredible.”
