Elvis Costello & The Imposters and The Who show WHO CARES for Teen Cancer America

 

The Who ended their tour of North America by topping the bill at a stunning benefot concert last night in aid of Teen Cancer America at the Theatre in Madison Square Garden. 

 

Elvis Costello played an excellent hard-rocking set, which he fittingly closed with a performance of The Who’s ‘Substitute’.

 

Opening the show was rising star, singer-songwriter Stephen Roth.

 

The Who played a set which combined some of their greatest hits with songs from Quadrophenia in a stunning performance. “Pete Townshend was simply remarkable,” writes Roger Friedman of Showbiz 411, “as he, Daltrey and the current model of The Who (which includes Townshend’s brother Simon and Ringo Starr’s on Zack Starkey) demolished the stage with a greatest hits show.”

 

The band is now taking a well-deserved break before hitting the road again to tour Quadrophenia + More in the UK and Europe in June.

 

 

 

 

Set List:

Who Are You

The Kids Are Alright

Behind Blue Eyes

Pinball Wizard

5:15

Drowned

You Better You Bet

Love Reign O’er Me

Baba O’Riley

Won’t Get Fooled Again

I saw the band in Toronto and Hamilton on this tour. How can these guys keep sounding better? I was blown away by both shows. I attended both shows with fans that had never seen the band and they walked away with jaws on the ground. Great work also from Pino, Simon and Zac. I’d say they have brought a better dimension to the live performances.
Bravo and I look forward to a return.

I ended up giving my ticket to a friend because I had to work until 12:30 am on Friday morning. He had a great time, he said. Very much in keeping with the comments here.

As I loitered around Penn Station at 1 am waiting for the 1:22 am all stops local to Trenton, I watched one of the approximately 8+ trucks get loaded up with the band’s gear.

Quite amazing. Seemed very efficient.
