View Full Version : Won't Get Fooled Again!
I just got 5 seats at MSG to see the WHO on September 18th!
Of course, it won't be quite the same without John Entwistle, but, they will still ROCK!.
Now- back to your regularly scheduled programming of checking off lists of peaks. :D

Great, I'll take two !
bzzzzzzzt, tickets are spoken for already.
But, if you go to www.thewholive.tv you can watch their Hyde Park concert for no charge. For an "encore" they played for about 20 minutes and they did a fairly coherent interpretation of TOMMY in that time period. It was outstanding.
September's a good month for MSG (and me). THE WHO on the 18th and Clapton on the 28th. :tup:
As Napoleon Dynamite would say: YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!

I've already seen them, on their Farewell tour... in 1982 :eek:
September 26 if I recall, Just me, the Clash and 75,000 of my closest friends.
Quite coincidentally (and I'm not making this up!) I hiked Indian Head/Fishhawk Cliffs on Saturday and "I can see for miles and miles" popped into my head while enjoying the view! Of course, they're only a bunch of has-beens now, like all the other bands from the 60's-70's... :twisted: :D

...And at SPAC in '71. People tell me that I was at a great concert, all 35,000 of us.
Just a blur now, eh Al? :p
Tim's post about seeing the Who on their "Farewell Tour" in '82 reminds me of seeing The Doobie Brothers at SPAC on their 'farewell tour' in '79. Do these bands know that they are going to stay together and do some more touring eventually? And then charge more for admission?
I also recall paying premium dollar to go see The Bands final performance, "The Last Waltz" at a movie theater. That retirement didn't last long (I'm not complaining). But then again, they're Canadian..... :rolleyes:
I am a sucker for the has-beens. :tup: :D 100bux to spend on live music, I'd rather see one has been at MSG than 2 or 3 of the current crop of "musicians" :oops:
I saw Cream play three nights at Madison Square Garden last October. The first and third night were so-so, but, the second night, well, those washed-up, arthritic, organ-transplant receiver has-beens blew the roof off the place :tup:

Last time I saw them, was at the Schafer Music Festival, in Central Park. Probably around the time that Tommy came out. Tickets were either $1.50 or $1.75. The Schafer Music festival was great. There were three or four concerts each week in Central park, and if you cuoldn't afford the tickets (really.. even at that price, I sometimes couldn't) you could hang out on the rocks above/behind the stage and listen. Just couldn't see.
That was when The Who finished by smashing everything.
