← The Who at the Barclays Center – Another Great Show
The Who Rock Montreal →
Great show despite Roger’s occasional struggles.
Ha, ROGER’S troubles? Roger’s troubles were ALL created by Pete losing his way in the songs! 5:15, Reign o’er me, and at least two other songs Pete played the wrong part, and once sang a nonsensical refrain when there was an entire stanza left to go…Roger stood there palms up saying “what the fuck are you doing? The guy on the mixer has to be quicker on the switch, because when playing lead, Pete will literally play right through Roger’s vocals.
Pete was jokingly trying to run off the stage at the end of the set kind of mocking Roger’s reaction.
At the end of the show their body language was almost hostile, they embraced each other with one arm, then roger stood with his arm around other musician while pete stood off by himself.
It was a great show, and pete screwing up was kind of amusing, but the old tension between them is NOT far below the surface. I wonder if this tour will still be going in Feb.
thanks .i was reliving all the past 40 plus years with the who in my life.how i could relate my life with your music once again.thanks for doing this one more time.and the most important part of all THE WHO SOUNDS PERFECT!!!!!!
I’ve been a fan for many years but never got to see the band in concert until last night. Although I wish that Keith and John had been there Roger and Pete put on an amazing show. Their performance was so good I can only imagine how great they must have been in their glory days. They may be two aging rockers but last night they gave a concert for the ages. Certainly hope they continue to work together and give us some new music.
Superb show. The sheer magnitude of Quadrophenia was very evident. It was the highlight of the show. Pete seemed to be totally immersed and Roger was in fine voice throughout all of the material. Zak Starkey remains one of the best kept secrets in rock drumming. The video inclusion of Moonie and the Ox made for poignant moments and a lot of the video of the band made for a reflective evening while not overly nostalgic. Glad I saw this show. Lived in Richmond England for several years and would walk by Pete’s home there and always thought there should be a sign that said “musical genius lives here”. Long Live Rock.
Yet again, another great great show. Great job on the video Roger.
