    Saw The Who Last Night

    Great show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville! Started out playing most of the songs from Tommy, complete with orchestra, then a bunch of their singles. Ended two hours later with songs from Quadrophenia. During the concert, Pete Townshend tripped and fell; jumped back up and kept going.

    Normally don't like going to concerts because of the crowds, but this one was terrific! At the beginning, Townshend said he was glad to be in Nashville, but reckoned that just about everyone in the crowd was a better guitar player than him!

    That sounds like a great show! Probably the closest to that show that we attended was the Rolling Stones on their "Bridges to Babylon." Were you allowed to take any pictures?

    Not sure about allowing pictures, but I'm sure some folks did. We were in box seats quite a distance away, so I didn't bother - didn't even bring my phone in.

    I have sort of rediscovered those guys through the wonders of Youtube, in addition to their big hits, which are staples of commercials and soundtracks to this day, Pete Townsend's demo's from Tommy and other albums are amazing, as are their live performances, all four (two now) were/are immensely talented.

    Would love to see them live someday.

    This is their "Moving On" tour. Looks like the closest they'll be to you is Dallas on Sept. 27 and Denver on the 29th.

    Sidenote: Ringo Starr's son, Zak, is their drummer.
