About the event
The Pete Townsend-penned masterpiece “ropera” (sic) about the deaf, dumb and blind kid, has been represented in theatre, film and of course, live performance by “The ‘Orrible ‘Oo”, but never in its full track listing sequence. That’s about to change, when Captain Walker’s Unborn Children bring “Tommy” to life at The Yarraville Club.
Says Rogers, ‘Captain Walker’s Unborn Children want to pull the pinball and light up the whole bloody thing.
‘No theatrics, no script, just Tommy in its entirety.’
The foolhardy minstrels sparkin’ up the stage include: Davey Lane, Ash Naylor, Brett Wolfenden, Talei Wolfgramm, Tim Rogers, Liam McGorry.
After seeing Tommy done in various states of theatre and film, Captain Walker’s brood wanted to revisit the power and atmosphere of the original LP – Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy!
