My first Who experience. Didn't go in expecting much. They F'in ROCKED! Great band: Zack Starkey (Ringo's kid) is really tight drummer. Pete's bro added some nice harmonies. There was actually some jamming going on here and there. Pete was in fine form. They sandwiched most of their new material between the rockin' hits. Definitely worth the discounted tix I picked up on eBay this afternoon.

Also, the opening band, Peeping Tom ?, was booed off the stage, and deservedly so in my opinion. I think they played an abbreviated set and exited, flipping the audience the bird. They were a rap/hip-hop/hard rock experiment gone TERRIBLY wrong. Take your time at the beer stand if they are opening in your town.

I'm not going this time but I saw them in 2004 and 2002 (right after Entwhistle passed). They were great both times, and they had Starkey and Townsend's brother in the band then as well. I can't imagine this year being any different.

Yeah, and I call our favorite band "The Allman and a couple of drummers from the Original Brothers Band".

For a person who hangs on an ABB site to bust on The Who for moving forward is kind of silly, I think.

Well just back from the Who show in Phildelphia. I have seen 15 Who shows dating back to Woodstock
But never seen anything like last night the band was on fire. Pete Townshend was possesed jam after jam his guitar work was exceptional he litteraly attacked the Guitar all night long

They mixed the standards with some new material played the whole new rock opera.

What an atmosphere the Wachovia center was jammed paced This was a love fest right from the start between The Who and Phildelphia everybody stood and was going crazy all night long What a Concert.
I know this is the brothers site but you should have been there the atmosphere was electric. Its really hard to describe
Rogers voice sounded great and Pete was back in the 60s wind mills leaps the whole nine yards there isnt a better showman in rock
But it was his serious guitar work that shinned never seen him play like that

Think the band was taken aback by the reception and continued adulation they recieved
Roger said if you guys were a little quiter we could hear our selves
Rogers and Petes techs were turning up volumn on their monitors all night long

Pete came out with this black and white durbin sun glasses a black sport coat that kept getting in the way all night long till he took it off and black pants and the traditional black doc martins

They played and hour and forty minutes of blistering non stop rock and roll took a five minute break forget this encore crap none of this tonight there was such a connection between the band and the fan's that just wouldnt be approiate Pete said we would be back in a few

They then tore into substitute with Pete taking over with a monster guitar jam They then played Tommy with Pete sololing again like only he can it seemed to go on forever
They ended with just Roger and Pete on stage Roger singing with Pete playing accoustic guitar They then hugged each other and thanked the auidence for the upteeth time
That was it the audience knew the band left it all on the stage last night
They knew they had just witnessed a historical performance

A word about ticket prices they are high and I know not everybody can't afford them
But what i seen last night was priceess

A bit of advice tickets were going for pocket change in the parking lot sclapers and fans trying to un load tickets for pocket change Good seats going for between 20 to 40 dollars the guy in front of me paid 40 buicks I was on the floor 6 rows from the stage
It's really worth the effort

Anyone who was in Philly last night will rave about it It was a performance for the generations.
I'm anxious to see the reviews from Jones Beach tonight the big question can they maintain that type of performance on a consistant basis
Only time will tell but last night The Who really kicked ass

Pete and Roger are going to be on Letterman tomorrow night 9/14/06

I'll be at the Boston concert saturday night after last night I'm really looking forward to it to say the least.

Nice review LarryDee.........as I said earlier in this thread, based on '02 and '04 I would expect nothing less and it's pretty much the same band.........in fact it may be EXACTLY the same band.

I'm a huge WHO fan and this is the first tour since 89 I'm not going to get to see. (I was unemployed all summer after a lay-off and I just can justify spending the money). I have the new mini opera single. I've heard a couple other tracks and I like it all. Since 96, The who has not had a bad show, in my opinion. I am bummed though. I heard they whipped out some rare old stuff too, like "Blue Red and Grey" & "Here For More"... Oh well.

Moving forward????

Are you kidding??

the Who have had numerous "Farewell" tours and retirements/breakups over the years.

Roger and Pete can't stand each other until it's time to go make some more money.

I saw three quarters of the band on the "Join Together" tour, which they billed as "An Evening of Who Music", not a Who concert.

Stevie Ray Vaughn opened, and blew them away.

Who's Left is what this should be called.

They should get Sir Paul to play bass and Ringo on drums.

Call it The Whootles.

You're kidding right? On the website of one of the biggest offenders of the "we're living off the name of the original members", and you're picking on the Who? (you get the idea, so save your scathing remarks)

The Who still has 50% of their original members, which is more than many bands from that time that still play around.

Let's face it, their hasn't been THE Allman Brothers Band in over 30 years.

Before you guys poke jest at The Who's current line-up Go and see for yourself what they are about
This current line play's some real kick ass rock and roll
Check the reviews

This is just not another old foggies tour doing their upteenth renditon of their greatest hits
The Who have a brand new CD called Endless Wire all fresh material a good third of their performance was of new material in Phildelphia
If you were there as I was You would be singing an entirely different tune

I agree.

That was bizarre.

When I think of The Who, it sure is something different than one acoustic guitar and Roger's voice.

I agree, although I liked the song. I stumbled upon this right before I went to sleep, the TV said 'The Who' was on Letterman so I thought I'd check it out. I can't fault rockbass for calling them 'the Two' because that's what it was. Maximum R&B? Hardly.

Bob Seger was on the Tonight show last night too, and his voice just sounded.....ummmmm....not good.

I kinda like the song actually.. Something different. They should be applauded for trying something new at this point in thier career.

Hmmm sound like what some OTHER band has been up to the last few years???

music is a subjective,emotional,spiritual,mystical & non-rational experience.i,like all of you have heard music that ,to me sounds great but to others it was terrible--why? because of the subjectivity of the experience---lets face it--we all probably don't like rap(i ,like gregg,think it's "short for crap") but some of you & many others think it's great"music"--so if others enjoy it who cares-------the relevant point being--i loved the originalWHO,but ican, based on reviews & the high calibre of current bandmembers,enjoy today's version of the WHO anyway.Indeed, some of you may hate it----and its ok for all of us --no harm done.
