Gisteren speelde The Who in de Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle. De Chronicle Live heeft een recensie.
“This band just goes on and on. Forty-eight years after The Who declared “I hope I die before I get old”, they’re still going strong. Last night at a sold-out Metro Radio Arena the pair, 69 and 68 respectively, rolled back the years to produce a performance of power and passion. Kicking off with a poweful opening salvo of I Am The Sea and The Real Me, it was clear that Daltrey, who remains in incredible nick, can still hit the notes.
Meanwhile, Townshend, though not as animated as he once was, still plays with incredible intensity. The pair, even though they’re knocking on, still retain that indefinable charisma.
Townshend thanked the audience for coming “when times are tough,” and Daltrey told how Newcastle held great memories for the band and wished the Toon a better season next time.
A great gig by classic artists. Right, it’s the 50th anniversary of Tommy in 2019. When do the tickets go on sale?”
