    Yep, it’s cause of the Hollywood Bowl show the next day. Would have been my first time seeing them. Oh well, I picked up tickets this morning for Bon Iver at an outdoor amphitheater in Missoula with the refund money.

    that's great to hear. Seeing them in Philly next weekend. Unfortunately haven't seen them before so really looking forward to it. this and the MSG review posted has been even more excited for it.

    Saw them last Tuesday in Grand Rapids. They are knocking it out of the park on this tour.

    for last who tour the screens in the venue were telling people not to smoke cannabis during the show because roger is massively allergic. this time around i never saw them advertising anything. then i saw this today...

    I get it, but a little harsh.  Maybe they should add some cannabis edibles or tinctures to the vendors menu.

    Roger is a living SAINT, his work alone for me with TCT is above and beyond what any other celebrity has ever done so people should respect his wishes especially if it jeopardizes his ability to sing and perform! Imagine being responsible for him walking off and the show getting canceled. I was there in Chicago in 06' the first time this happened and he left the stage but, thank God it was near the end and PT sang lead on an extended My Generation.

    How the heck do guys their age do it?  I get up most morning running on three pistons, feeling like the battery is almost dead, the tires nearly flat and the carburetor is gummed up.  Gotta give those geezers much credit!

    I really wanted to beat the guy in front of me over the head with his own phone.  He was obviously a big Who fan but he recorded the entire fucking show on his phone except for a few slower tunes.  

    After Tool I really wish all artists would go the "no phones" route.  I had really good seats but was distracted by his bullshit in my view all night.

    What a pain in the ass.

    To use a sports analogy these guys are simply great athletes, they have always been the most physical band onstage and I believe it has helped them to endure a longevity that most other bands can only dream of!

  • Got cheap tickets for their show at Citizens Bank Park in Philly last Saturday and they were impressive.  Daltrey's voice is in amazing shape for 75 (?) and Townsend was great also.  I thought Zak Starkey was the MVP of the show and the Orchestra was cool too.  My first time seeing the Who and I couldn't have asked for more, well maybe the Seeker.

    I was there also and my first time seeing them as well.  I thought it was great.  Agree on your thoughts above on Daltry, Townsend and Starkey. Really enjoyed how the orchestra fit in. and holy shit did that woman blow away the Baba O'Riley Violin part. that was great.  Favorite songs for me were Join Together, Behind Blue Eyes  and of course Baba. All of it was really good though.  I recommend the show.

    Amazing show in Detroit last night! Set list was a little different than Grand Rapids, which was nice.

    They seemed to be more comfortable on stage and the music really benefited from that. In the three weeks they've been on tour, they have really tightened up and refined the performance. Zack is killing it and sounded better than in GR. World class drummer, that guy. Pete tore it up a lot more on guitar, too. The flow felt more natural and organic last night, whereas GR was more structured and orchestrated. Both nights were amazing but Detroit just had that extra special something.

    The Real Me, I Can See for Miles, Love Reign, Behind Blue Eyes and Baba were the highlights for me. I'm One and the Rock, too.

    I can't stop grinning after last night. This show will be a part of me for life.

    I haven't seen the who since the Gorge in 2000.  Was tempted to go to Vancouver but it's midweek, $200, and I'm running out of Vac. days.  Plus it might get cancelled.  It's barely sold any tickets :(

    Good question.  Nothing on Billboard's new release calendar so I guess no release date given yet.

    All I have heard is 2019, no specific date. 

    After seeing them on this tour, I have a suspicion that the album will be an instant classic. 

    Really looking forward to it!

    Absolutely! They inspired the hell out of me. I've played guitar more this summer than I have in like, the last seven years. Much of that is due to the jolt The Who gave me.
