Revered nationwide for performing Who songs and entire albums exactly as they were originally recorded, Bargain recreates The Who with on-stage theatrics that are trademarks of Who concerts.

The band will have the audience singing along to Neil Diamond’s classics in this high-energy show that covers the artist’s most popular songs.
