Overture to Tommy

We saw The Who on Friday in St Paul. It was our 5th Who concert since 1996 and in my opinion this was the best. It was a sold out crowd. This concert was our first show having Roger Daltrey, and Pete Townshend and a full orchestra backing the performance.

Tommy and Quadrophenia are such magnificent works for me. They started with the Tommy overture and the realization came over me that I was watching this work performed by artists that created it and being performed to the fullest expression of Daltrey’s and Townshend’s intent. These opportunities are fleeting, I admit it choked me up.


The Who’s Moving On Tour is doing three US concerts a week through the end of October. If you are ever inclined to see them live, my opinion is that this would be money well spent.
