THE WHO “TOMMY” POP-UP SHOP AND PINBALL ARCADE

 EXCLUSIVE SIGNED ARTWORK, PRETTY GREEN PARKA, BOXSETS TO BE WON

 

To celebrate the release on 11th November of The Who’s defining rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind pinball playing boy in Deluxe and Super Deluxe editions, there will be a very special week-long pop-up shop and pinball arcade just off the spiritual home of The Mods, Carnaby Street.

 

Mark your diary: the pop-up shop will be active from the 7th to 15th November – at 19 Foubert’s Place, London W1.

 

BandMerch a subsidiary of AEG Live and Universal Music Catalogue are proud to announce that the pop-up shop will carry a whole range of The Who and Tommy merchandise as well as original 1970s pinball machines, including a very rare Tommy machine.

If you ever thought yourself to be the Pinball Wizard now is your chance to prove it -whoever gets the highest score on the original Tommy pinball machine will win a special Fender Stratocaster signed by Pete Townshend.

 

Eight exclusive pieces of Tommy artwork signed by Pete Townshend will be auctioned in store in aid of The Double O and Teenage Cancer Trust charities.

 

The first 10 people through the door on the 7th will be able to buy signed boxsets and the first 100 will receive a limited edition The Who lanyard.

 

Every person visiting the store will have the chance to win signed posters, a Pretty Green Who Parka and a very special art print by John Penton Davis. Paul Kelly will be on hand in the store at 2pm on Friday as well as all day on Saturday and Sunday to display the artwork John did for the book ‘A Decade Of The Who’ and to tell his story.

Bonjour Peter et Roger,j’ai 60 ans, je connais et je suis les Who depuis 1968, j’ai eu tous les vynil (que j’ai gardé), j’ai tous les cd, les dvd, vous êtes venus 4 fois en France je vous ai vu 3 fois, cette année je ne pouvais pas, vraiment pas, j’attends la vidéo de bercy 2013 (?).

Une question, Tommy avec orchestre symphonique a été édité en vynil, mais comment le trouver en cd ? Bien sur ce n’est pas l’original, mais du moment que ça vient des Who, je suis preneur.

D’avance merci, longue vie à vous deux, pourquoi pas un nouveau disque svp.

Gilles

I wish I were in the U.K. I know I could win highest score. For years I played/play pinball. I alway’s listen to PINBALL WIZARD EVERY TIME I PLAY…..BTW…. I might know TOMMY better than anyone. I watch the rock opera all the time. I have 5 video tapes and it’s on my DVR…… I know TOMMY more than I probably know myself. I know every rendition to a tea. My one dream/wish in my life is to sing a song for Pete Townshend one time…. I know I could make proud. And Roger,Zak, Simon etc…. Is there a chance to purchase a Pretty Green Who Parka that would help one of the above charities. Which I plan to make a donation anyway……..I could not make arrangements to London from Detroit in time if i could….. Thank you to Everyone who was/is involved to bringing these most talented artists work into my life. I have been listening to THE WHO since i was 6 yrs. old. Now i’m almost 50………..Thank You for making such a impact on my life………Cheers…….All The Best, Nancy Maslanik.

Ps… saw them three times over the years when they hit Florida… latest was the Quadrophenia tour. Vintage GREAT! True professionals and gave their all – the second show of the tour and was for part of our honeymoon!

Long live the memory of J.E. Quad showed how he could transcend great and reach immortality in playing a leading bass guitar. Top bass player ever.

Stanley Clark ain’t bad either. They eventually will play dueling bass contests in heaven.

I want front row seats!!

Been a fan since early 70′s with Magic Bus and everything since. Can’t enter the contest from here in the US, but would love to if it was a drawing type contest…

Had an early car sticker of the Union Jack with the words “THE WHO” on it with THE being vertical and WHO being on the horizontal axis. Great sticker, but the car was totaled along with the sticker long ago. Have the current ones, but want an old Union Jack WHO sticker… where can I obtain one??

“there once was a sticker, pure and easy…”

Long live the Who!
