Free kids’ tickets

COLUMBUS Polaris
Amphitheater will host The Who’s
'lhmmy In Concert on July 11. At

The Who’s Tommy In Concert
stars Broadway’s original Tony-
nominated Tommy Michael
Cerveris, and several principal
members of the original 'lbmmy
cast.

The show features dramatic
music and images that convey the
story of Tommy. A full nine-piece
rock band is also on stage and per-
forms all of the classic Tommy
songs.

The story of 'Ibmmy was written
by Pete Townshend about a boy,
Tommy Walker, who is struck deaf,
dumb, and blind after witnessing
his father murder his mother’s
love. This show is all‘about the clas-

sic Who songs that are so familiar
to rock fans of every generation.
The quest that Tommy endures,
from childhood trauma to Pinball
Wizard strikes emotional chords
with everyone who is familiar with
the work of the musical.
