Dear Pete & Rog. Having attended about a dozen Who gigs, starting as a 13 yr. old miscreant who witnessed Tommy at the Fillmore East on my birthday, OCT, ’69, during your 5 night stint there – I had to let you know that THIS performance at MSG on WEDS night equaled, if not bested – that night some 43 years ago on the lower east side.
The sight, sound and motion video-driven extravaganza was superbly conceived, executed – AND GREAT!
I was so touched, nearly to tears, by the Entwhistle & Moonie homages you built in to the show.
BTW, the sound quality was incredible…so hats off to the entire team!
Yes, the show last night @ the “Pru-Center” in Newark, NJ was a tribute to the genius of Pete in writing Quad so long ago, so well-performed by him, Roger, and the band. The clips of Keith & John within the set were seamless & inspiring. I love the intensity & purity with which these great “godfathers” of rock shared their gift once again. Long Live Rock! p.s Read Pete’s book during the power outage from Sandy & noreaster— great read. Pete, I love you! God bless the rest of the tour.
You might want to not that it is Madison Square Garden – no S on the end.
Thanks. Typo. Jet lag!
The photos are from the 12/6/12 show at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ — not at MSG!!
Amazing performance, amazing crowd and we remain awed by the musicianship, connection with the people and relevance of what is arguably the greatest work by the greatest rock music composer and greatest live band in history. Just crazy good.
saw the show at Brooklyn and Newark, and this is the best the boys have looked and sounded in years.
