<i>The Who's Tommy: The Amazing Joumey</i> is a whirlwind tour through the twenty-five-year history of The Who's legendary rock opera, <i>Tommy</i>, conducted by its creator, Pete Townshend. Insights from Townshend, along with the other original members of The Who, Roger Daltrey and John Entwistle, take us from the classic rock band's early days in working-class England to center stage of the Metropolitan Opera House, and from Woodstock to Broadway, where an entire generation later the rock anthem of the sixties has garnered five Tony Awards and continues to play to sold-out audiences.
This documentary weaves hilarious and moving footage of twenty-five years of <i>Tommy</i> incarnations, rare The Who concert clips with plenty of typical guitar smashing, and dazzling Broadway performances together with in-depth interviews of director Ken Russell, who filmed <i>Tommy</i>, music giants Elton John and Tina Turner, who starred in the film, Phil Collins, and the Broadway director and cast. The film includes over thirty classic The Who singles, such as "Pinball Wizard," "See Me, Feel Me," "I Can See for Miles” and "My Generation."
<i>The Who's Tommy: The Amazing Journey</i> explores the history of one of rock 'n' roll's most enduring bands through the extraordinary phenomenon of its creation, <i>Tommy</i>, which twenty-five years later still resonates with audiences.
