Sat first row. Right in front of Roger.Seen the show back in 97 at the palace.The Who is my favorite British band probably entire world. Any ways Quadrophenia is my all time favorite album from start to finish, The band sounded great instrumently and Rogers vocals were right on. Needless to say i was in heaven. Nice to see Zac on the drums, he did a great job. Definately have to see this again so i guess i will see you guys in Ohio or somewhere for sure. I WANT TO DROWN IN COLD WATER>

Saw the who in Tempe AZ on Holloween night in 1982 there was 51,000 people there. then I just got to see you guys in Minneapolis on Nov. 27TH a much smaller group of people I can say one thing you guys sure put on a good show. Sound’d just as good as 30 years ago what a rock’n show I was so happy to get to see the Who again 30 years later I talk’d a friend into going with me he was impressed with you guys it was worth the trip from North Dakota to see the show too bad you guys don’t come to Fargo N.D. There most likely would be close to a sold-out show. You guys sound great still

Life after live Who performances is un—-imaginable. The Who (the two), however defined, always have, and certainly did, last Saturday, deliver a most thrilling and rocking show, leaving nothing behind. Rock/pop artists should take heart to the delivery of The Who’s live performance, intensity on stage, perserverence through tradgedy, triumph and contribution to their fan base.

A most fabulous touring band, re-produced a sound consistent with what we have been spoiled with in the original “Who” line-up. Zak Starkey was fabulous–Pino–super solid although you have the toughest shoes to fill ever! Frank Simes–brilliant! Keyboards, horns etc…you brought it all home with power and brilliance!

Roger’s voice was “spot on” and energy/presence on stage was nothing short of OUTSTANDING…Pete was like not a day passed in the last 30 years…the jumps were a bit lower to the ground, but the thrill of what he gives is like no other.

I am always amazed at what most define as a great concert, band & performance. All I can say is: If you have not seen the Who play live, make certain you do now! They are in fabulous forrm! You never will and I am vertaain

I think I can give an educated guess as to why the small venue. Having seen The Who in Pittsburgh on the 11th, I was constantly looking at available tickets. There were a lot of unsold tickets for the Console Energy Centre, and many great seats were still available the night before. I knew there would be a lot of loose tickets to be found for deep discount. Blame the economy, blame the new “Farewell Tour,” but it’s difficult to sell tickets to middle class fans. Only after several spectacular shows by Roger Waters and Bruce Springsteen did the tickets become scarce and affordable. Obviously, this was the beginning of the Who tour so most people never figured they would pull it off (myself included.) But when you see the show, you know, it’s the Real Deal. So the same situation occured in Detroit with many tickets available and unsold. But now the word is out!!!! This will snowball!!!! Via the media, this will become the specticle that it truely is. The band desirves it, the fans desirve it, and the new generation of Who fans will jump on board. If they came back to Pittsburgh or Detroit it would sell our in one hour. Just my thoughts.
