Pete Townshend ‘Who I am’: Full 4 part Video Interview →
Smashing success from the opening band through the musical madness of Quadrophenia and onto the finish. A perfect setting in AC. The Who brought their A game – so did this crowd – another night to remember and cherish. Cheers.
Enjoyed a great show with my new friend, Andy! Did you send the emails?
My husband and I drove 7 hours on Friday to see The Who in concert. The tickets were a Christmas present from me & I’ll never top this gift! My 46 year old hubby was like a teenager that night…….singing every word to every song. What a great show! My husband is still thanking me!
Just saw them last nite in Manchester,NH 3rd row center.They were awesome!Last time I saw them was in the late 60s when they did Tommy for a week at Fillmore East. Roger worked so hard to reach all the high notes all night and was quite accurate even though some smokers tried to ruin his evening. He was visibly upset and Pete Townsend explained later he is allergic. The video tributes were sensational and the crowd very respectful and completely thrilled by the show. The music and vocals were crisp and as timeless as could be. If you closed your eyes you never would have known you weren’t listening to a 20 year old Daltrey.played about 2 1/2 hours with no breaks.
I last saw The Who in 1976…Then, I saw them in AC the other night and am so glad I did. Quadrophenia is such an underrated under played album and they played the whole thing with gusto and precision. (Im still humming the songs 4 days later). The video tributes to Keith and John brought tears to my eyes. (Critque-1: Rather than just a great bass solo, I woulda liked if they had let John sing “My Wife” from the video screen while the band played the music like they did with Keith and Bellboy.) The biggest contrast was the crowd, very polite and curteous, not a whiff of smoke in the arena, nobody jockying to get closer to the stage. Everybody was standing throughout the concert, but only in front of their own seats (VERY unlike the 70′s). Not alot of hair in the crowd either(and what little of it there was appeared alot more silvery) if you knwo what I mean…But the crowd was just as entusiastic in their approeciation of this great music the other night as they were back in the day (at least to the extent their aching bones allowed them to be.) Zak Starky played an excellent drum and Petes brother was both an excellent guitar player and a great compliment to Rogers vocals (Critque-2, More “duets” between these two would actually enhance the vocal element in some places). Priced at $125 for a 25th row seat, note for note the Who remain the greatest rock and roll band in the world….
