Beware MOD alert!

BRADLEY Wiggins not withstanding we have a bit of a problem with MODs - all relates back to the 80s and their hijacking of rock bands and New Wave bands and a devotion to 'fashion' rather than the music. Which makes it all the more worrying that the arrival of The Who in Belfast will see the parkas and scooters out in force.

Here's the blurb:

THE WHO, one of rock’s legendary and defining bands, has announced an Irish and UK arena tour where they’ll perform their iconic 1973 double album QUADROPHENIA in its entirety, along with a selection of WHO classics.
8th June: The O2, Dublin
10th June: Odyssey Arena, Belfast
Tickets are on sale this Friday, 1 February at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.ie
The tour follows on from a hugely successful North American, tour, praised by press and fans alike as probably the definitive interpretation of Quadrophenia and a rock 'n' roll lover's dream come true” (Telegram.com, Boston). “QUADROPHENIA is their (The Who’s) boldest and most fully realized albums,” writes Rolling Stone, “but it's never quite gotten the live show it deserves – until now”.
