The Who on performing Quadrophenia


The Who are back on stage in the UK this month, touring with a full-length performance of their classic Seventies album, Quadrophenia.

Guitarist Pete Townshend calls it a "quintessentially English piece" - but its story belongs to a very brief moment in history: the Bank Holiday riots between rival gangs of Mods and Rockers in 1964.

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey talk about what it is like to perform Quadrophenia for a 2013 audience.

Watch The Who on Quadrophenia on the BBC News Channel on Saturday 15 June and Sunday 16 June, and for seven days afterwards on the BBC iPlayer.
