“The Who prove they aren’t going gently”

The National heeft een nieuw artikel over het concert gisteravond geplaatst.

“The highlights came mid-set with the first and last tracks from 1971’s classic Who’s Next: Baba O’Riley and Won’t Get Fooled Again, Townshend’s seismic guitar stabs and Daltrey’s angst still having the power to thrill.

This wasn’t a perfect performance. There were missed cues and shaky moments. One feels for Daltrey – his vocals are easy to scrutinise, while a fluffed note from Townshend easily goes unnoticed amid his relentless guitar-work

“Leaving the stage for the last time, Daltrey knocked over his mic stand – and then ran back and mock-jumped on it, wearing a mighty grin. This touchingly good-natured moment was a telling contrast to the ritual destruction of The Who’s youth.
