Story by Jack Foley
THE Who will perform their classic album Quadrophenia in full at a special one-off charity gig in London this July.
The Wembley Arena show takes place on July 8 and will raise funds for Double O, a charity established by the band themselves in 1976 which offers support for causes such as relief of drug and alcohol addiction, domestic violence and sexual abuse.
It comes in addition to a full UK tour in June that will see the band performing their 1973 LP, including a night at London’s O2 Arena.
