The Who & Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - Frank Erwin Center - 4/27/2015

Townshend was on, beginning with his windmill-accented guitar mandhandling on “The Seeker.” He injected Live at Leeds prowess into “My Generation,” and the palpable whiff of punk edging 1981’s “You Better You Bet” (“our most recent hit,” cracked Townshend) egged Daltrey to near vocal gnashing, and all without the apparent use of a teleprompter. The singer couldn’t be reading the guitarist’s original outpourings given that he often sings with his eyes closed. [Austin Chronicle]

The Who kicked off their 50th anniversary tour with support from Joan Jett earlier this month, and hit Austin this week for a show at the Frank Erwin Center. The review quoted above and the pictures in this post are from that show. Check out the hits-filled setlist, which included everything from “I Can’t Explain” to “My Generation” to “Pinball Wizard” to “Bargain” to “Love, Reign O’er Me” and plenty more, below. Joan’s setlist, also including hits like “Bad Reputation,” “Cherry Bomb,” “I Hate Myself for Loving” and more, is below as well.

The tour hits the NYC-area on May 20 at Nassau Coliseum, May 26 at Barclays Center, May 30 at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, October 25 at Prudential Center and October 27 at Madison Square Garden. Tickets for all five shows are still available. Forest Hills tix here, and tix for the other four here.

Updated tour dates are listed, with more pictures and setlists, below…
