Tommy was the first true Rock Opera and the album that catapulted the Who onto the world stage for keeps. But it came out of a time of great uncertainty for the band and tested their endurance and determination to the limit.
This film explores the background, creation and impact of Tommy through new interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, archive interviews with the late John Entwistle and contributions from engineer Bob Pridden and artwork creator Mike McInnery plus journalists who help assess the album’s historic and cultural impact.
