Tour Diary: June 10th, 2013 – Dublin


So we played Dublin and Edge from U2 suggested Roger and I adjust our clothing. More on that later.


It’s been fabulous weather here and that has raised the spirits of all the people we’ve met. The crowd was terrific, and the show was pretty good. Despite the solid commitment to Quadrophenia displayed by the audience, it was in the last four or five songs – the hits – that the audience really got into gear.


I’m happy playing this tour, bringing Quadrophenia back home to where it began.

“Love is On the Air” – your lyrics collaboratively written for David Gilmour’s About Face album. Great song and poignant in that the theme of the album seems to be centered on relationship loss. I realize I’m off topic from the current tour activities but had to ‘relay’ my profound fondness of your writing.

Cache Cache – I love the original version on Scoop (as well as the changed version on Face Dances). Also – Body Language is cheeky and clever. Hope 2014 sees:

A) More Who shows
B) More of Pete’s “Demos”…. ‘How Can I Help you?’ would be nice to include.

Cheers to you.

The Belfast gig was incredible. Please don’t neglect us for another 46 years. How about The Who touring a version of Lifehouse (unless Floss turns out to be a Who project)? Looking forward to a DVD of Quadrophenia Live 2013. Thank you for making our dreams come true.

Dear Pete,
I am truly waiting for listening to Quadrophenia. It is your definite masterpiece. I listened to it maybe a few thousands times in my life, and the more you listen to it the more you understand how complicated and great it is ! I don’t know but the instrument pieces are my favorite and the last scene of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Pierrot Le Fou” with Rimbaud’s poem is coming to my mind….You and Roger’s gears are always cool. I don’t think you should adjust them. See you in 02 and Wembley!!
