“The new Who can still thrill 5 decades on”

De Telegraph heeft eveneens een recensie van het concert in Hyde Park.

“Only the most jaded would have failed to feel a thrill as the opening chords of Can’t Explain rang out over Hyde Park on Friday night. From that opening salvo it was a rocking roller coaster through the band’s greatest songs.

The Who solved the perennial tension between the demand of fans for the familiar and the artist’s desire for the new and experimental by having set out their stall at the start of this tour as an unashamed celebration of their glorious back catalogue.

The Seeker, Who Are You?, the Kids Are Allright, Pictures of Lily, I Can See For Miles; Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey delivered them with the energy and enthusiasm of performers half their age.

And it was the band’s ability to still thrill five decades on that was being celebrated here
