Went to the Who last night front and center and I was very impressed. They displayed alot of energy and enthusiasm when performing their songs. The new stuff, while nothing earth shattering, I thought was very solid and fit in well with the show. Man in a Purple Dress and Tea and Theater were very nice new acoustic numbers that they did.
I have always liked Daltry as a vocalist and he sounded just as powerful and strong as ever. That man has some lungs to sing the way he was over the years. Not too many people can pull that off.
IMHO they are still on there game. It was my first time seeing them live and I left there with a new appreciation of this band.Very Nice!!

Here is a review of the show from the Indy Star.

The Who draws on the big picture



By David Lindquist
david.lindquist@indystar.com

Bottom line: A spectacular celebration of song.

The Who's entire career seemed to unfold as a seamless concept album Tuesday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The rock band is famous for individual works of connected songs ("Tommy," "Quadrophenia"), but this performance created a picture larger than might be reasonably expected for an act 25 years past its first farewell tour.
Songwriter-guitarist Pete Townshend has spent his career examining music and the meaning of life, and the former may be the answer to the latter.
Chronologically, the Who's thesis began with "Real Good Looking Boy," a tribute to Elvis Presley recorded for a 2004 hits compilation.
Vocalist Roger Daltrey introduced the tune by reverently recalling his first exposure to the King of Rock 'n' Roll.
The Who's primary contribution to the 20th century's cultural revolution arrived with a sprawling rendition of "My Generation." As Townshend pursued instrumental tangents and Daltrey danced the dance of a hypnotized raver, video screens cycled through decades of youngsters making their own scenes.
But selections from "Wire & Glass" -- an abbreviated rock opera found within the band's current and lightly regarded "Endless Wire" album -- truly pulled together Townshend's ideas:
"Pick Up the Peace" imagined a trio of young musicians excavating good from the idealistic 60s. The musicians find mainstream rewards during "We Got a Hit," yet they're selfless in their celebration ("We were the carriers"). Fame eventually roughs them up and sharks circle on a video screen, but closing segment "Mirror Door" saluted a legacy that stretches farther back than Presley by mentioning Mozart and Bach.
On the other side of "Wire & Glass," the Who rewarded its encouraging audience of 9,000 with an epic version of "Baba O'Riley."
From Daltrey's scene-setting vocals to Townshend's "teenage wasteland" vocal spotlight to Daltrey's harmonica solo, the tune grew more tremendous at every turn.
At 63, Daltrey remains a singing marvel who combines tenderness and blast-furnace intensity on "Behind Blue Eyes."
Townshend played electric guitar for most of the program, and he gravitated to slashing single-note micro-solos in addition to his esteemed array of monster chords.
The multidimensional efforts of keyboard player John "Rabbit" Bundrick and guitarist Simon Townshend (Pete's younger brother) overshadowed the no-frills playing of drummer Zak Starkey and bassist Pino Palladino.
Starkey and Palladino, of course, fill the roles of late drummer Keith Moon and late bassist John Entwistle.
After botching his "My Generation" solo at Verizon Wireless Music Center in 2002, Palladino at least proved he could nail it at Conseco.

Nice to hear a great review of one of my faves. Didn't catch 'em when they passed through this time, but I've seen the current band and they're great.

audience of 9000...is that a misprint? This place holds over 18,000. I find it hard to believe that only 9000 showed up.

Yeah..that's what I was wondering too. To me when I looked around there it seemed to be full all the way up to the top. They Had the back of the stage and around the sides blocked off and they had the curtain pulled on the top seats about half way around..but still it had to be more than 9,000 by the way it looked to me.

Have always loved the Who - glad to hear they are still kicking butt with their live shows. Haven't seen them since before the Ox died but they kicked ass the times I did see them. Baba O'Riley always takes me straight back to my senior year in high school - kind of an anthem for the times, if you will.

I liked what Pete said after the huge applause for "baba o'reilly" when he was here last fall--"that's more your anthem than ours." I think those were his exact words.

I saw them in Atlanta this past November. Outstanding show. My first time to see them. I purchased the DVD and the CD of the show, best purchases I've made for quite some time.
If you have the opportunity I highly recommend checking them out.
