The Who sounded better than I thought they would, I was tapping my toes and rocking with them. I thought they were pretty good.

Awesome Stage show!! And hey wth, they only had a 12 minute set, like everyone else. I liked Zakk Starkey's Custom DW Keith Moon throwback clear shell kit, with the Zildjian Mod cymbals. I thought they did great. The crowd seemed to dig it.........

I had to agree with my wife when she said they should keep their mouths shut and just play.

Townshend looked like Rod Stewart with his belly hanging out.

Well since you asked BV. I'm glad I got to see them in the day. I REALLY miss John Entwistle.

I'm with you. Couple of things I noticed... Has the synth on "Bab O'Riley" always been pre-recorded "Live"?

At the end of their performance, just Daltrey and Pete were out front for a bow...

Maybe I just prefer to remember bands in their prime....

The pyro technics and light show was good - the music was a train wreck! Paled in comparison to The Zac Brown Band's pre-race spot Sat night and their accapella(sp) vocals on the national anthem! I had been watching Moogis, the 3/28 closing show from last March to keep from being bombarded by the pre-game hype all afternoon. when the game started, I just kept listening to the ABb thru headphones while watching the first half, and to put that show on pause in the middle of Mountain Jam for the 12 mins of the Who was a monumental letdown! my 2 cents worth!

I believe the Baba O'Riley intro has always been a recording in their live concerts. I saw them in '71 in Memphis and it was recorded then, so I believe it always has been. I assume it was done originally to avoid having additional personnel on stage. It was a subject of discussion back then, as I recall, among the fans as well as the band. In retrospect, it seems funny that it was a concern in light of many of today's "artists" who basically lip-sync their entire performance.

I enjoyed them. Big Who fan - they've always been one of the bands for me and were a big part of the soundtrack of my youth. Kind of bittersweet having seen the original band and Pete, Roger, and John but I still have to give them props. I agree that the vocals aren't as strong as they once were but I was actually pleasantly surprised tonight.

The key was that Roger was singing very well tonight. Obviously not as good as the 70's and 80's but much better than the hoarseness of the last few years. The crowd was singing along with every word.
