So, I'm on vacation in Fla for a week so last night my girlfriend and I took my nephew and a friend to see The Who, none of us had seen them before so we were all pretty psyched, got there in enough time to have a few beers and catch a little bit of Rose Hill Drive, who sounded pretty good. Then, finally, The Who. They opened up w/ Can't Explain, Daltrey got to about the third line then walked offstage, then the band stopped and Pete said Roger had bronchitis and couldn't sing and that they had to cancel. They walked off stage, the lights came on and that was that. Pretty disappointing but, as my Grandmother would say, "What're you gonna do?"

Pretty **** ty way to cancel a show, you'd think he'd of figured out at noon or so that he couldn't sing.

I hoped that they figured out that they owed you a refund. Bummer!

Most likely because the show started you will not get a refund. I saw James Taylor @ Great Woods in Mansfield Mass. A thunderstorm came thru, he stopped and announced the lawn section would have to leave because it was dangerous for all to stay outside. The venue made us leave, when we asked what time we could come back they said sorry the storm will be here for a while and it is too dangerous. When asked about a refund they replied the show had started and no refund would be available.

This from the the Who site:

14.03.07 THE WHO TAMPA SHOW RESCHEDULED FOR MARCH 25th
TAMPA, FL - March 12, 2007 - The Who has scheduled a make up show in Tampa, Florida for March 25th after Roger Daltrey experienced vocal challenges as a result of a medical condition.

Pete Townshend spoke to an understanding audience and promised to return on Sunday, March 25th.

All tickets will be honored for the new date or may also be refunded at place of purchase.

The Who are currently performing the last few dates of their North American tour before returning to Europe. For official tour and fan club information visit www.thewhotour.com.


hope that helps ...

Ticket prices aside, I knew Roger and Pete were more upstanding gentlemen than to offer up three songs and then run with the cash.

At least they're rescheduling -- I don't believe that was the case when Keith passed out on his drum kit two songs into a show back in the day (mid 70s or so) at Boston Gahden, and they couldn't continue.
Still a bummer though, reschedule or no.

Were you there for that show? I wasn't but is that the show where they asked and got a drummer from the audience and continued without Keith?

They rescheduled that Boston Garden show to April 1, 1976. All reports indicate the make up show was a screamer.

When Keith passed out at the Cow Palace in 1973 when he ate 18 horse tranquilizers, they enlisted a fan from the audience for the encore. Keith passed out midshow, was injected with 'something' to revive him, he made it until Won't Get Fooled Again and passed out completely just prior to the second synth break...so no drum solo at the end of WGFA

I'm a little surprised they didn't continue with Townsend on vocals. I have seen him solo and he did just about all the Who classics. He knows the lyrics. But rescheduling was probably the best thing to do. Sucks for the vacatoiners that can't make it back down for the make up date. At least they are also offering refunds.

Had to throw in my 2 cents worth on this. Let my qualify my standing as a fan of the Who. "Who's Next" makes my Top Ten of all time. Hands down, Incredible work, from very talented Musicians. 'Nuff said.
There was a "Joke" going around the bar that I frequent that anyone going to see the "Who" were really paying to see the "Two". Where does one draw the Line on what constitutes an "Original" band?
Example of what I mean...Let's say a "Major" Rock 'n Roll band (4 Members, Singer Guitarist, Bass player & drummer) suffers in a terrible accident. The only surviving members are the Drummer and the bass player. Can these two still fairly market themselves as the original Band? Is the Market that driven by the "front men"?
So, The question is..."Would they still be the Who" ...If the two surving Members were Moon and Entwhistle?
I've always wondered about this. I guess it boils down to How big a fan you are...Thoughts?

BigV..good question...when did the ABB stop being that and become a cover band? They exist with one Allman Brother and the two original drummers.

I am not knocking ABB at all...but the same argument can be made here.

As long as there are two or more original members they should be able to use the original name. Once you are down to one original it turns into a solo act. Just my opinion.

Well Pete, well said and if we apply that to The Who I do not think either Roger or Pete would, or do... for that matter, parade solo as The Who.

These rules about how many band members it would take to still use the name are very general in nature and I believe it would and does depend on the situation.

Hope this doesn't descend into a Who bashing thread.

This same or similar yet interesting, subject was covered earlier in this thread:

We've had this discussion before. The Allman Brothers are not the same band they were in the early 70's. They were reborn in 1989 with Warren Haynes and he is just as key or core a member as anyone. As Jimmy Herring said in his interview in the new HTN, if Warren did not return, the ABB would have died. Warren is the ONLY one who could have credibly replaced Dickey Betts long term. The ABB was a unique situation. Most groups would not have kept going when a figure like Duane Allman died. Theya re the exception that proved the rule. I think the Who are different because the sound they had was very unique. It was never replaced with Moon gone and with Entwistle gone, it was all over. The idea that Townsend would sing without Daltrey? Well then it's really a Townsend show not a Who show at all. I would feel more comfortable if they toured as Daltrey/Townsend. Meanwhile Little Feat has no original members and Marshall Tucker has one original member who can't sing anymore and Lynyrd Skynyrd has one original member.

Deep Purple is just down to its drummer as an "original" member, but they are also in the odd position where the "original" line-up is not the "classic" line-up anyway!
