K-SHE-95 heeft een artikel over het concert in Abu Dhabi gisteravond.
Roger meldt: “This is what we like. We have been doing this for a long time and to play in a totally new place and to a new audience is absolutely wonderful. We do have a certain amount of regrets and we do feel like we should have visited a few places a long time ago. It is just that Pete was never keen on touring. But now that the sands of time are ticking down, he seems to be more keen than ever“.
De krant noemt “Squeeze Box” een van de hoogtepunten van het concert. Het nummer werd voor het laatst door The Who in 1982 gespeeld. Roger zegt over dit nummer: “We just did it as a piece of fun — and that’s probably why it’s gonna be in my show! It’s just so quirky, and it just gives you kind of a slight insight into Pete’s humor, y’know? At the time it was kind of tongue-in-cheek, a bit. We were very proud of our pop history. We’re a pop group. We’re a rock group now — but we started as a pop group, and there’s nothing wrong with pop. Pop’s got a very valuable place in music history. And a three-minute single, they’re all gems, usually, and they still stand up. A good song, is a good song, is a good song.“
