Townshed confirmed they are still connected to their fans after playing 40 years together.

He said: "There is a new audience that comes to it for obvious reasons. It is a story about the travails of being young.

"But also there is a poignancy that we get from the older fans of Quadrophenia, people that could be our age or even a little younger - or sometimes even a little older - who reconnect with Quadrophenia without there being nostalgia."
