Anybody Going to See "The Who"?

I can't believe it - Roger Waters, Elton John, and The Who (well, Pete and Roger) all in one year! I may have to go see Pete and Roger twice. I don't think once will be enough. I'm going to the December concert in Nashville. I may have to add Atlanta in November if hubby is game....Hmmm...

I can't wait!

Cool! I'll be the one with a big smile waving a Union Jack.

Have fun!

Haven't seen them since about '86 or '87. I'm sure they'll be good, but it's not the same without Entwistle (much less without Keith). They're performing the complete Quadrophenia, correct? Enjoy the show!

I won tickets from our Local radio station for the Dec 8th show in Philly. I can't wait. We can't afford to do concerts so I haven't been to one in many many years...very excited.

Yup, I will be there at Madison Square Garden in December -- with my brother, my cousin, my boyfriend, his cousin, his cousin's girlfriend, and his cousin's parents (whew!). I can't wait, it's going to be so awesome. This will be my 3rd time. Last time was during the previous Quadrophenia tour in 96. My favorite album of all time -- no way I'd miss this!

No current plans to see The Twho, but I've seen them 8 times. First two times Keith was still with us. I almost was at the infamous Cincinnati Riverfront Coliseum show. That's where I first saw them in '75.

My cousins were there, and I was at their house. They were very shaken up after the show and didn't know the extent of what happened until they saw it on the news.

Brought this thread back because I bought tickets this morning for Detroit November 24! There was a show about the making of Quadrophenia on TV last night so I looked up the tour info. We got second row center section seats...the Platinum VIP Experience with open bar pre-party et al. This will be our Christmas presents this year.

Quadrophenia is my favorite album of all time.

Wow, what a thrill that will be. Have you read Pete Townshend's bio? I read some excerpts in Rolling Stone. Eye-opening to say the least.

Listen to the opening band, Vintage Trouble -- it's one of DS20's favorites.

DD22 is a huge fan of The Who (has been ever since the age of 9 when she saw a summerstock theatre production of Tommy).

She and a friend have tickets to the show in Phoenix in February. She is VERY excited for Quadrophenia!

I went with her to a performance at the Nokia Theatre a few years back, and we had second row seats. I have never heard anything as loud as that concert in my entire life! My daughter was thrilled and loved every minute of it. Pete and Roger were right in front of us, I'm guessing not more than twenty feet away. I'm a huge Beatles fan and was more interested in watching Zac Starkey on the drums!

Both of our daughters went to see Roger Daltrey in concert last October at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. They had the VIP package and got to attend a pre-show event with a meet-and-greet with Roger. They said Roger was very gracious and super nice. He signed posters for them, paused for photos and took the time to chat with each of them. My younger daughter said he kissed her on the cheek and told her she looked lovely. Needless to say, she was on cloud nine for days!
