The Playhouse Theatre, 126-130 High Street, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1HP
The two most high-octane music acts of the theatre stage come together for one massive show.
Following a sell-out West End run and three sell-out tours the ‘ALL OR NOTHING EXPERIENCE’ teams up with another smash hit, sell-out touring show, ‘QUADROPHENIA-the album, LIVE!’
The All or Nothing Experience follows the rise and demise of the Small Faces, the band who encapsulated all that was Mod – a unique blend of taste and testosterone, clothes-obsessed and street-wise – but most of all, a dedication to rhythm ‘n’ blues. The show, celebrates the unique sound of this iconic Mod band, including hits ‘Whatcha Gonna Do About It?’, ‘TinSoldier’, ‘Lazy Sunday’, Itchycoo Park and All or Nothing.
QUADROPHENIA – the album, LIVE! Sees 8-piece band, The Goldhawks, deliver a stunning live performance of The Who’s smash hit concept album, Quadrophenia. Paying homage to a pivotal moment in British youth culture, Quadrophenia served as an ode to teenage angst and counterculture rebellion, as well as a criticism of the British class, economic and educational systems but you don’t need to be clued up on the history of the Mods and Rockers to enjoy this show because at its core, Quadrophenia, which peaked at No. 2 on the UK and USA charts, is just about teenage confusion, conflict and frustration. Backed with exciting, and sometimes heart-wrenching, large-screen projection of archival footage, theemotions, tension and raw power that the music demands is delivered masterfully by this fabulous, charismatic band with amazing replication of The Who’s polished, latter-day sound.
