Total Who Show: Commonweal School:17 November.

By Shirley Ludford On Wednesday 8th November 2017

How many bands can claim to have not one, but two rock stars in their ranks? But the Total Who Show has just that in front man, Johnny Warman, and guitarist, Phil Spalding. The show, which celebrates legendary British rock band, The Who, comes to Commonweal School, Swindon, on Friday 17 November. The evening aims to raise money for new musical instruments and equipment for students.

For Johnny, it's all about paying tribute, rather than mimicking the originals: "We don't get carried away thinking this was our music. And we don't dress up as The Who, smash up our guitars, or swing microphones around. It's all about doing justice to songs that changed the face of popular music."

 The Total Who Show is performed by Johnny Warman's Magic Bus. Between them, the band has worked with acts including Elton John, David Bowie, Ringo Starr, Peter Gabriel, Asia, Julian Lennon, ABC, Cheap Trick, Bruce Springsteen, and Foo Fighters.

 “The first half of the evening features musical super stars of Commonweal and some of our large vocal groups. The event is to raise money to equip our new music block which is soon to be built,” said Ali Sutcliffe head of performing arts.

Support from the cream of Commonweal students:- Billy and Louie Hughes – duet, Stella Cobson, Louisa Wood, Kody Bowler, Erin Fletcher, Chloe Frost, Yr 13 band, Chamber Choir, Sweet Harmony, Commonweal Collective
