← The Who at the Barclays Center – Another Great Show
The Who Rock Montreal →
Well the Boston Quadrophenia show was different than the one I saw the first time in December 1973.
Pete looked a tad older and he just laughed at his apparent knee problem at one point, as he feigned his signature leaping/dance moves.
Roger’s microphone chord seemed to be a great deal shorter as well, lassoing less and watching more video during singing/howling breaks, than in ’73.
Noticeably missing were the two other original members, less their video guest appearances. I reckon they must have been hung up at a local bar, arrested for some minor infraction, or maybe missed the flight from the other side. One more drum kit spared is one way to look at it.
No seriously, the show was brilliant, moving, imperfectly wonderful Who live music extravaganza. And god we miss and love the other two very much. Thank you, thank you. Keep leaping and singing – it’ll keep you younger,….or kill you dead on the spot. Better way out than an Elvis on the toilet!
Saw them in ’82 Philadelphia then ’97 in my hometown of Montreal…..Tonight was my 3rd Who show and was blown away ! Thank You Pete
and Roger and the rest of the band ! The visuals were truly amazing, a perfect fit with the music. Hope this show comes out on DVD or Blu-Ray ?
great show in Boston best of seen video footage also top shelf THE WHO should be very proud of this show
