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

Great Tour….amazing show for an amazing album! Attended shows in Toronto and Hamilton. Continued success! Any chance of putting out a DVD of your final show of the Farewell Tour that was broadcasted around the world from Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto?

“Pete Townshend was simply remarkable,”….and spectacular as when I saw him this leg of the Tour. Stunning in brilliance.

Dear Roger,Pete, Simon,Pino,Zak and the Band.

Last night was for us the sixth and last night we will see you (this year!?)
What a way to end what has been a truly spectacular run of concerts, you just got better and better, with Rogers voice staying young and strong and a very obvious happy Pete thrilling everyone with every strike on his Strat.

Zak Simon and PIno are very much THE WHO , thank you !

Hoping at some point later you will issue a DVD of the tour so we can show our boys Tommy4 and Jimmy2 where we kept sneaking off to, its the only time our life we wished we had had our kids younger so they could come along and feel , feel that beautiful music that is pure euphoria!

Blazing show at the Theatre in MSG.
Elvis Costello and the Imposters gave an electrified performance of EC classics as well as a killer cover of “Substitute.”

And The Who barnstormed through a 10 song set that was filled with passion from both an energetic Roger Daltrey and blistering guitar work from Pete Townshend!

Great to see them in such a small venue doing what they do best. Hopefully they will tour the US again. Thanks for a stellar night of rock ‘n’ roll!
