Just brilliant….

The Who have announced that they will release their classic 1973 rock opera ‘Quadrophenia’ as a special ‘Director’s Cut’ boxset later this year.

Guitarist Pete Townshend revealed that he had been overseeing work on ‘Quadrophenia: The Director’s Cut’, which will be released on November 14 and will include previously unheard demos, an exclusive eight-track 5.1 Sound DVD, a deluxe hard-back book, previously unseen personal notes, photographs, and other memorabilia that is yet to be revealed. The album will also be re-released in double vinyl, 2-disc digi-pak and digital versions.

Townshend said: “This 2011 revisit to The Who’s 1973 ‘Quadrophenia’ recording is inspired by current and continuing interest in the project. The Who performed a concert version of the piece at the Royal Albert Hall in 2010 for the Teenage Cancer Trust with excellent reviews, and the success of that event led to the prospect of a Who tour in 2012 based on the album. The last such tour was between 1996-1997.” (via NME)

The Who could be set to record a new album. In an interview on the band’s official website – TheWho.com, frontman Roger Daltrey revealed that guitarist Pete Townshend is working on a follow-up to 2006’s “Endless Wire”. “Pete is writing,” Daltrey revealed. “You never know when that might turn up. So, between now and then [our next tour], there might be a new album.” Currently in the planning stages for a 2011 tour, Daltrey admitted that it would be more than just a greatest hits show.

“We have thought about that (doing a greatest hits tour),” he said. “But what is a greatest hits show? All the hits and nothing else, and none of the obscure? That would bore me shitless. If we did a greatest hits tour, everybody would say, ‘We’re bored with that, give us something else’. We can never please everybody.” The singer also admitted that he’d like to play as many different shows on the tour as possible, with their 1973 rock opera “Quadrophenia” and 1969 album “Tommy”, also being performed. “I would like to be on the road playing as many different kind of shows as we could,” he explained. “Maybe doing “Quadrophenia” one night, do greatest hits the next night, this is what I would like to do. And “Tommy”, if I could still sing “Tommy”. He added: “That would be really good fun and don’t keep going out with the same show every night – the audience would have to take a chance on what show they actually got”. (via NME)
