Who's Who
Date: 24th February 2018
Details:  Formed in West London in 1996, Who’s Who, the longest established Who Tribute Show in the UK, have received incredible reactions across Europe and beyond for their exciting live performances. Widely respected and acknowledged by members of The Who, as the group that most interprets the songs of Pete Townshend and the legendary live performances of The Who, with honesty and integrity. Giving nothing less than 100% during a performance, Who ’s Who ensure that a night to remember is guarantee. The band celebrated the 40th anniversary of "Live at Leeds" in 2010, touring extensively and performing the whole of "Tommy" to audiences in the UK and Europe, amid critical acclaim.

Raw Power, Passion and Soul, that's what defines the members that make up Who’s Who. Their longevity and chemistry together as a unit is unchallengeable - 13 years in a stable line-up, the longest ever for any Who type band; and from that comes an understanding of each other as players; much like The Who themselves. Any player will tell you that you cannot buy chemistry, and it serves as a testament to the reputation they have worked extremely hard to cement.

Who's Who plays to its strengths, which is its collective talent as players and performers. The music will always come first - there are no wigs or "stick on" sideburns here.

As history rolls on; they have proved to be an essential ingredient to fans of The Who and the musical legacy it's left behind.

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.
