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



You Better You Bet

Love Reign O’er Me

Baba O’Riley

Won’t Get Fooled Again

Oh – and I certainly hope that I did not just witness the last performance of the Who ever in North America……
Im hoping for another tour! Say, next year? Guys – what do you think!?!?!?

The show was absolutely awesome. Roger and Pete were rocking and Zack Starkey really IS the perfect person to fill in for Keith Moon behind those drums. I was surprised they didn’t do at least one more song from TOMMY, however – since 1982 at Shea Stadium – I always feel as though they’re playing Love Reign O’er Me just for me. Thanks guys! Love you!
