The Who Rock Liverpool

The Twittersphere – @TheWho – started buzzing yesterday morning, as fans, young and old, mod and metro, made their pilgrimage to Liverpool’s Echo Arena to see The Who perform Quadrophenia (and greatest hits). And it hasn’t stopped buzzing since. The Who didn’t disappoint their audience and the stage production, directed by Roger Daltrey, of Quadrophenia, which has already been described in several press articles as the definitive Quadrophenia, met and beat expectations.

 

“An amazing gig,” writes Marc Waddington of the Liverpool Echo, “and as you sat through the video montage of momentous events from the year they formed through to now, you got a feeling that this band will never die, just as their music never grows old.”

The Who take ‘Quadrophenia and More’ to Paris and Amsterdam this week before closing the tour on Monday July 8th at Wembley Arena, London. A few tickets are still available HERE.

Second gig in seven days. Booked for the Manchester concert in February, which was great apart from the seats and a few drunken idiots around us. Managed to get two tickets on Thursday for the Echo arena just four rows from the front directly in front of Pete. (could not believe our luck). Just want to add that the Liverpool crowd where amazing. Had a good day all round and met some great people. I love the Albert Dock and nice hotel to boot. Any future concerts we want to see will be in Liverpool from now on, Finished with the M.E.N arena for good. Thanks to the WHO and to you the Liverpool folk for a great Sunday. As Pete said your all a set of Bastards, but ain’t we all? LOL!!

Tanks a lot Roger, Pete !
Vous êtes le premier groupe de rock que j’ai vu sur scène en 1965 au Marquee à Londres : ce fut une révolution, mon père n’était que du Wagner !
Hier à Bercy, j’étais avec mes 2 fils, nous avons vecu un concert inoubliable; je dois l’avouer, j’ai pleure, j’ai danse et chante : grâce à vous, j’aurai toujours 15 ans et vous resterez pour moi “the best rock and roll band in the world”.

PS Les hommages à John et Keith nous ont vraiment touchés!!

Great to see Quadrophenia live again, as always they delivered a great gig in Liverpool but top marks to Roger for a really great voice and the drumming was quite superb. Saw Simon’s gig the next night at the O2 Academy, poor turnout for a city like Liverpool (Monday night was no excuse)but the guys played their heart out and put in a fantastic set. The band hung around and chatted and signed CD’s, they were all really nice, whatever you do don’t miss them if they come around again. Best £12 I’ve spent for years. Thanks to The Who for still touring and Simon and his band, two great nights out.

I don’t normally comment on site such as this but guys ( Pete Townsend & Roger)your performance and the whole show I will never forget. Mind you that’s not many years left to forget. I just wished that I saw you guys when I was younger and when Keith and John were still with this. The timing with clips and emotions and the sublimely message was immense. You are truly more than a band or a musically group. I hope you felt justly rewarded for your efforts by the Liverpool crowd although a few of us did the journey and were rewarded by just being there.
