Tonight We Went To See Tommy - The Who's Live Rock Opera

JP and Wanda invited us to see a rock opera tonight. If you are as old as I am - you my remember The Who writing an performing a rock opera - Tommy. 

The students at Lincoln High School on the east side of town - took the challenge to perform this difficult piece. 

I was 20 when the double LP album was released. I used to play it over and over - many of the songs are classics like - Pinball Wizard. 

For $10 - we got to hear some very good musicians do an excellent job on this almost 50 year old piece. A spectacular light show helped move things along.
