“The Who bring 50 years of hits”

The Houston Chronicle heeft een recensie van het concert, gisteravond in het Toyota Center in Houston.

“Daltrey and Townshend are still masters of the microphone swing and the windmill guitar stabbing game, and Daltrey’s voice has aged into a fine, husky rumble. He doesn’t reach the highs he used to (one of his peers, Robert Plant, doesn’t either) so the arrangements are changed a bit to accommodate. “Love Reign O’er Me” was a highlight, letting Daltrey exercise that growl of his that turned the band into arena stars in the ’70s.

In the show’s final minutes as the band took its final bows, Daltrey did say this could be his last time doing a major tour, citing his 71-year-old body as not always cooperating. The iconic howl he let out at the end of “Won’t Get Fooled Again” — the show closer — seemed to have taken out the last of his night’s energy. He even seemed surprised at what came out of him, and we all did too, as if 44 years hadn’t passed since the band unleashed “Who’s Next” onto the world. That was the scream we’ve all heard coming from car stereos, tape decks, and turntables all these many years. It sounded like we’d all gone back to the first time we heard it. It felt like home
