Les Miserables' Alfie Boe, most recently seen on Broadway in Finding Neverland, will join Pete Townshend and Billy Idol for a series of performances of The Who's Classic Quadrophenia in September in the U.S. The limited tour will play two evenings at NYC's Metropolitan Opera House. Here are the Concert dates.

September 2 in Lenox, Massachusetts, at Tanglewood
September 9 in New York, New York, at Metropolitan Opera House
September 10 in New York, New York, at Metropolitan Opera House
September 16 in Los Angeles, California, at The Greek Theatre

The September 2 performance in Lenox will feature the Boston Pops Orchestra and conductor Keith Lockhart. The New York and Los Angeles performances will be led by conductor Robert Ziegler, and the Los Angeles show will support Teen Cancer America with a portion of proceeds going to the charity. "I'm thrilled to be bringing Classic Quadrophenia stateside through the month of September," Townshend said in a statement. "Melding the contrasting sounds of Quadrophenia with a symphony has been a really unique and powerful way to reach a wide audience of classical and pop music lovers alike. I couldn't be more excited to see it continue in the U.S." The Who's rock opera Quadrophenia was originally released as a double album in 1973. The album, later turned into a feature film and theatrical production, follows an angst-ridden young man in London who creates a new life for himself as a member of the Mods.     READ THE FULL Playbill ARTICLE
