Geffen RecordsIf you thought today was Halloween, you're partly right. VH1 Classic has declared it Wholloween, and will devote the day to all things The Who.
The ****** starts at 12:30 p.m. ET/PT with a broadcast of the 1975 film version of Tommy, followed by a 3:00 p.m. airing of BBC Electric Proms: The Who, a chronicle of the band's 2006 gig at London's Roundhouse venue. At 4:00 p.m. it's the VH1 documentary Classic Albums: Who's Next, and then at 5:00 p.m., VH1 Classic in Concert: Listening to You: The Who at The Isle of Wight, as in the band's iconic 1970 show there.
The back-to-back broadcasts all pave the way for the 8:00 p.m. U.S. television premiere of Quadrophenia: Can You See the Real Me?, a 2012 documentary about the making of the 1973 rock opera of the same name.
It's no coincidence that The Who's 37-date U.S. tour, during which they'll play Quadrophenia in it's entirety, kicks off Thursday in Sunrise, Florida. For the itinerary and more info, head over to TheWho.com.
