“Nothing short of phenomenal”

Gigwise heeft een recensie van het concert in Londen.

“Although just two original members of The Who remain, both Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend managed to thrill and excite. Daltry was on top form with his exemplary microphone swinging, whilst Townshend’s guitar helicopters were as enthusiastic and frantic as some of the background archived footage which showed a much younger figure pulling off the same moves.

As the last bars of ‘Love Reign O’Er Me’ reverberate around the arena, the nature of the show hit home as fans cheered in awe after witnessing a performance that was nothing short of phenomenal. With the album complete, Townshend went on to thank everyone on the stage and in attendance for being part of something “written in 1973 about events from 1963, performed in 2013.”

With heartfelt speeches and introductions out the way, there was some real fun to be had as the band launched into ‘Who Are You.’ Four more classic numbers from The Who followed and they even payed tribute to the man of the moment Andy Murray, with a message of congratulations on the big screen a day after his victory at Wimbledon. (..) After over two hours on stage, the legendary figures leave and with that concert prove that there is certainly life in the old dogs yet
