The Who Story comes to Hunstanton




The Goldhawks return to Princess Theatre, Hunstanton on Sunday, October 31 with their new production The Who Story.

Two hours of barnstorming hits and anthems will be sure to get you on your feet and singing along.

Following their last sold-out show at the Princess Theatre, Quadrophenia the album Live, back in 2019, this latest show delivers all of The Who’s astounding back-catalogue with iconic numbers such as My Generation, Won’t Get Fooled Again and Substitute.

The Goldhawks formed three years ago but their rise in popularity has been fast.

Doug Freeman, lead vocalist, said: “We weren’t sure what to expect when we came out on stage for our first theatre show in Bedford.

"We knew we had a strong foundation of the best musicians, we knew we enjoyed performing the show in rehearsals but we really didn’t expect a standing ovation on our very first outing followed by hundreds of five-star reviews. We were humbled.”

With that smash-hit theatre tour under their belt, culminating with film stars, Phil Daniels, Trevor Laird and Jane Horrocks joining them on stage at the final, sold-out show in Brighton, they had already began to plan their next production.

Saul Watson, the band’s answer to John Entwistle, said, “With an eight-piece band we’re able to recreate the huge, lush and exciting sound of The Who’s finest records and backed with a seven metre-wide film screen showing a bespoke film, musically and visually, there’s a lot of excitement going on onstage.”

Will Foxlow, close friend of Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, of The Who and now a staunch fan of The Goldhawks, said, “This show is absolutely first class.

"Having toured and worked with The Who for 10 years I can safely say that this band is the next best thing and the closest you will ever get to the real thing."

Lynn resident and long-standing Who follower, Roger Clifford, reviewed the last Hunstanton show on social media and said, “I have seen The Who 20 plus times since 1969 at the Isle of Wight Festival and The Goldhawks performance was wonderful. They performed just like the actual Who, absolutely brilliant.”
