Well crap. Search fail.

In any case, I love this show. I'm one of those odd ducks who actually likes a lot of The Who and Townshend's solo 80s material, and this tour has a good variety of eras.

I've always liked The Who a lot, but in the past decade or so, they've moved up to one of my top 5 bands of all time. Saw shows during their last two tours and have tickets for this fall (sprung for floors this time - very excited). Saw the revival of Tommy in 2013 at Stratford. Des McAnuff directed, and Pete Townshend attended a performance there just a few days before ours. Des gave a little talk for a few minutes before the show started. I also saw the original Toronto production in '95.

I saw this tour in Foxboro, if I recall its the one where Townshend is playing in a glass booth or something because of his tinnitus.

Huh. No booth in the dvd I posted.

That's actually something I really like about Who shows now - the sound mix is good. Adequately loud, but not deafening.

I'm a casual Who fan. Started to get interested in them in '89. I can remember the Who being one of the hottest tickets in the second half of 1989. I think it was like 7 years since they had last toured, but it seemed like a lifetime.

I remember growing up in the 80s and hearing that every tour was their OMG FINAL TOUR, and being really eye-rolly about it. Ha.

Well, in 1982 they had their "final" tour and in 1989 they had their "reunion" tour. Plus, in the 80's "OMG" didn't exist.

That would probably be relevent were I not using the acronym as a short form for the phrase, as opposed to it literally sounding out as Oh Emm Gee.

Right, I was trying to convey to you that O-M-G didn't exist, but "Oh my God!" did. If we're gonna kick it like it's the 1980's, you gotta do it right.
