The Who are out performing their classic 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia on a tour that came to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night (11/14), the first of five NYC-area dates that stretch into the new year (actually six if you count the just-announced Sandy benefit). Tickets are still on sale for those other shows, and pictures and the setlist from the Brooklyn show are in this post. .
Someone at the Greensboro show wrote:
"Concluding Quadrophenia with a stellar "Love Reign O'er Me," the encore was a string of greatest hits which ignited the crowd. "Baba O' Reilly" had the whole coliseum on it's feet reliving teenage wasteland days. Next, Townsend's guitar laid out the opening notes to "Pinball Wizard" and Daltrey seized the vocals. Daltrey was excellent on the classic "Behind Blue Eyes" while manhandling an acoustic guitar. "Who Are You" rocked the place once more before bringing the house down with "Won't Get Fooled Again." As scenes from 9/11 flashed on the video screens the power and emotion of the music could not have been clearer." [CL]
