The Who‘s Tommy gets the ‘Super DeLuxe’ treatment and is re-released with bonus tracks in November.
The launch party takes place at a secret location in London (by which they mean yet to be announced to avoid hundreds of fans turning up unannounced) on 22nd October 2013, and Vespa are offering five lucky people the chance to each win a pair of tickets to this exclusive event.
