“The Who seem invincible”

The Birmingham Mail heeft een recensie van het concert in Birmingham.

“They finally nailed it. Forty years after releasing the album that Pete Townshend acknowledges is their masterwork, The Who at last gave Quadrophenia the live treatment it so richly deserves.             
(..)
Thanks to the added video this show was literally a resurrection – not only was the music of Quadrophenia allowed to take centre stage, the late John Entwistle got to deliver a show-stopping bass solo on 5:15 and Keith Moon seamlessly gave us his glorious live rendition of Bellboy, a mere 35 years after his untimely death.

Playing with an intensity and conviction that would shame a band a third of their age, Townshend and Daltrey also ripped through a selection of classics, including Who Are You?, Pinball Wizard, Baba O’Riley and Won’t Get Fooled Again. Almost fifty years after they started playing together, The Who seem invincible. See you next year for the Lifehouse tour, lads?
