Pete Townshend will be on stage Sunday at the Tony Awards in New York to introduce a performance by the cast of the revival of The Who‘s Tommy, which opened on Broadway in March.

It’s been nominated for Best Revival of a Musical. In 1993, the cast did a medley on the show, which won five Tonys, including Best Original Score and Best Direction of a Musical.

Townshend is one of 16 Tony winners who have also had Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, which he did in 1980 with “Let My Love Open the Door,” which peaked at number-nine.
