American debut of Tommy!

"I worked at the Grande for a few years, and ended up being the last manager. The Who decided to have their premiere performance of "Tommy" at the Grande. They rehearsed there all week long, needing music stands to help them memorize the lyrics as they went. After rehearsals, we all went to the basement and picked pairs of roller skates from a pile 10 feet tall, turned on the strobe lights and skated around the ballroom floor with music blaring. "Tommy" debuted that weekend to packed crowds and an enthusiastic reception."
