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

Although I hated to miss this final show, I was fortunate enough to catch the shows in Uncasville, CT, Tulsa, OK, and the 12.12.12 show. Have seen every Who tour since 1973 and these shows were truly magnificent. Thanks and congratulations to the band, crew and staff. And of course the audience. The Who’s audience need a record deal. We’re really good.

Thanks to The Who — my husband and I saw two great shows – one in December at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and the second show in my hometown of Providence, Rhode Island at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center! WOW fantastic performances at both shows. Then we saw Simon Townshend at Church in Boston, Massachusetts last night. Fantastic music and fun nights all around! Love and peace to all of you.

Visuals were stunning with lots of new and blistering videos for the hits
EC was given the same great light and video show.

We love The Who and now love Elvis Costello and the imposters.

i listend to Roger talking on BBC Radio 2 around 12/14 years ago where he was starting the teenage cancer trust,
explaining how teenagers didnt want to be on wards with young children or with older Adults
they need to be around people of their own ages at such a tough time,
He was getting involved in setting up raising money for these hospital units to be set up and boy has He worked hard in the UK, & now getting it all started in the USA
I,ll say it again this man should be KNIGHTED for his relentless work

Cant wait to see The Who in Cardiff June 25th
first time was in Swansea Vetch (Swansea city fc old ground)way back in 1976
Remember it was packed with people up on the big old floodlights
and watched them around the UK ever since
My boys are hooked as well.

See you in Cardiff
