Orchestral Manoeuvres

In Simon's Blog by Simon Townshend

Hey Folks, I’m breaking my silence… right now I’m in the middle of a 6 week run of Orchestral Tommy shows with Roger Daltrey at the helm. Tonight we’re at Forest Hills, NY and Tuesday at the Mann Center in Philadelphia. After that I will need to consult tour book… I know we’re heading to Chicago soon.

I have to say, this is a really great show to be part of. The arrangements by David Campbell are stunning. If you like The Who’s Tommy you’ll love this show. My brother, Pete that wrote this wonderful rock opera will be very proud when he hears this, I’m sure.

Recently, outside of rehearsing and performing for Tommy, I’ve been busy writing and coming up with ideas for new songs, perhaps even reworks of old songs that deserve a new voice and a bigger captive audience. I have formed a new writing partnership that is exciting and the future is looking bright for my creative side, a part of me that has been locked away for too long. For this reason I have removed the free download links on my website for the time being. I hope some of you got to enjoy the demos I posted – hopefully one day you’ll hear one or two of them finished on a major album.

Ok. All for now. Maybe I’ll be back… maybe I won’t but stay tuned to find out. Thanks all for hanging with me and your undying support on my amazing journey. Love u all.
