Fan Review:

by Willem Molenaar

Last night I saw THE WHO at the Amsterdam Ziggo Dome. Support act VINTAGE TROUBLE were superb and made many new fans.

Then it was time for QUADROPHENIA. It seemed Pete needed some time to really get into it (There were some minor  technical problems too.), but after a while he took control and started to address the crowd frequently, creating an intimate atmosphere in this large arena.

The Who got better with each song and the last three songs (‘Dr. Jimmy’, ‘The Rock’ and ‘Love reign o’er me’) left the audience in awe.

They went on to amaze the crowd with the encore. Townshend referred to the last time they played Amsterdam (Oude Rai, 1972), a long time ago. I was there  and I could never have imagined then I would see The Who more than 40 years later, playing a superb concert on a magical night, with my 16 year old son next to me, shouting and screaming in total admiration.

Thanks boys!

I went to Amsterdam by train on Friday, it took over 7 hours, got lost in the city, I was alone, it was hot and it was really not funny…

But what I experienced that evening was worth everything. I have read all comments and replies before. But I didn´t expect this. Thank you guys for this show. Compliments also to all the people in the background who make something like this possible.

I can´t even find the right words in german to tell my friends what I felt. How should I do it in english? I guess everybody who was there knows what I mean. This was the first time that I saw The Who. I hope it was not the last time. I wish you all the best. Stay healthy. And thank you for being with me with your music nearly every day in my life :-x

What a really great gig in Amsterdam! I´m a fan for many years but I´ve never seen them live before – only on TV and DVD. Pete and Roger are amazing musicians from past times – just as Rory Gallagher and many others. I love their music!

Greetings from Germany
Joachim

A fan since I first saw The Who aged 15 (me not them !) in 1982.
It was great to be part of the ocean on this shitty world we live in last night Pete!
