← The Who at the Barclays Center – Another Great Show
The Who Rock Montreal →
Had the chance to see The Who in New York when they debuted Quadrophenia (back when I was in 8th grade) and didn’t. I always regretted it and was glad I could rectify my mistake last night. Saw the concert with my son and two brothers and it was a fantastic show! The band played for over two hours without a break! Pete and Roger were in fine form, and the musicianship all around (particularly Zak Starkey on drums) was excellent. The vintage footage of the band (especially the appearances of John Entwistle and Keith Moon) interspersed with film clips of historic events was extremely well done. In fact, I enjoyed the show so much I am planning to go again later in the tour with my wife and some friends. Long live The Who!
This is about the 90th time I have seen The Who since the late 70′s, they still rock after all these years. I can not wait to see them in NH & RI in February 2013. Rock on lads. Also had the chance to meet Simon, a great guy.
I loved the show at The Boston
Garden. I’ve been going to Who shows since ’71. The production and performance was quite good. Roger’s voice is sounding good. Quadrophenia roared along with great sound. The energy level was high and the crowd response was positive. The Who show in 2008 sounded flat at times and lumbered along. Not so last night. I wish they could mix up the selection of Golden Nuggets songs at the end of the show. I think fans would cherish hearing rarely performed songs from their massive catalog. I know I would! Vintage Trouble was outstanding as an opening act. They are not to be missed on this tour. Get to the show early!!!
Outstanding show! Fortunate enough to have VIP tickets last night and saw the sound check performance as well. Like seeing 2 concerts in one night! Loved the tributes to “The OX” and “Moonie.” Pete, Roger, Zak, Simon and everyone were totally in synch. The energy from the stage was reverberated from the audience…it was “WHO-TASTIC!”
Brilliant performance in Boston! I’m so happy I was part of the party! Rock on \m/
