Quadrophenia Tour closes with Press and Fans in One Mind?

 

The Who brought their UK/European tour of Quadrophenia and More to a close on July 8th with a stunning performance of Quadrophenia (“It’s not nostalgia,” as Pete Townshend said so ironically on stage, “it’s pre-history.”) and Who favourites, including “Who Are You”, “You Better You Bet”, “Pinball Wizard”, “Baba O’Riley”, “Won’t Get Fooled Again” and, finally, their perennial kiss good night “Tea & Theatre”. As the ecstatic fans left the show at the end, Love reigned over Wembley. 

 

The concert was in aid of Refuge and Double O Charities.

I saw the band play at the o2 with my partner. I’ve lived the part of Jimmy for years without really knowing it. My partner (god bless her) took me back to my scootering days, blew the dust off of my vinyl copy of Quadrophenia, made me listen to it, loudly, it all came back. When i saw and heard The Who play these tracks in front of my eyes, i cried tears of joy. Im an old soldier who has been greatly affected by my experiences and for two and half glorious hours you made me feel alive again. Love to you Pete & Roger. John and Keith we miss, but guys you are still the greatest.

I was born in 1968 and missed the legendary days of the Who, however, I can look back and say I have now seen the WHO almost 50 times since their ‘farewell tour’ in 1982. I count every show among the greatest nights of my life. Above all, was Quadrophenia at Hyde Park in 96, MSG 96 (all 6 shows), the 96-97 Quad shows, and the return of Quad to the US in 2012. After leaving Dec. 2012 MSG in NYC at the end of the show, I felt such a feeling of despair, feeling it was my last WHO show ever. There were tears in my eyes. I was numb. My wife surprised me the next day at work with a ticket to Prudential Center in NJ that evening. She said she couldn’t bear to see me so sad the night before. I left that show in a much different manner- grateful for all the years the band carried on after the tragic loss of Moonie. Grateful I got to see my heroes numerous times, in some wonderful places. And thankful that despite all the issues within the band, addiction, etc. that Pete pulled it together and rocked on for many, many more years to come. I look back with a tear in my eye, but a smile on my face. “We did it all, didn’t we?” YES, we did. Thank you Roger and Pete….for carrying on. RIP John and Keith. See you on the other side. Long live rock.
