The Who to release ‘condensed opera’ The Who Tickets

Band set to return to ‘Tommy’ territory – only shortened

The Who to release ‘condensed opera’
The Who are planning a limited edition release ahead of their long awaited full album this year.

The group’s surviving members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are currently working on their first studio record in 24 years, but have revealed plans for an extra release.

Recalling their 1969 rock opera ‘Tommy’, guitarist Townshend confirmed the group have returned to the extended concept format.

Writing on Petetownshend.co.uk, Townshend said: “Roger and I have completed the condensed 11-minute mini-opera, played it to the folks at (record label) Polydor, and are all set to release - probably as a limited edition - in June, prior to the release of a conventional CD in September.”

A full album from The Who was delayed after the group’s drummer Zak Starkey committed himself to playing with Oasis last year, but with summer gigs and a headlining appearance at this year’s T In The Park confirmed, the band now look set to return to action.
