As has been rumoured for a while, the Who are to reprise the great 1970 gig at Leeds University. Tickets might just be gold-dust...  Wink

I am going to Hyde Park on 2nd July, when they will be headlining, though it's Razorlight and others I'm really going to see.
I might even go see Primal Scream on the other stage headlining, not that they are a patch on what The Who were.
'Were' being the operative word, since I am a Stalinist Who fan, after Keith Moon died, that was it for me.
Now with no John Entwhistle either.

I saw the WHO back in the eighties ( or was it the 70's ??) at Wembley - with Keith Moon strutin his stuff - They were brilliant, I'll never forget it. I must admit I would love to see a revival gig, but without Keith and John - Not the same

 Sad

I'll always remember Roger Daltrey for his role in McVicar - excellent film.

I still regret not going to see them back during their 1997 Quadrophenia tour. If they play Atlanta this Fall, I'll probably go, as this may be the last chance I'll get to see them live.

Would have to have been the Seventies, Moon died in 78.

I think calling this a revival tour is a bit harsh. They've been more or less a working band again since 1996, touring regularly. Funny thing is that they had some of the best reviews of their career on the last tour in 2004.

Are they the same band without Moon and Entwistle? Of course not. Are they still an astonishingly good live act? Absolutely. I took a mate with me to see them two years ago and he was a bit stunned. He expected a couple of old boys going through the motions; he couldn't believe the power of their performance. Extraordinary as it might be, they're still one of the best live acts around.

And this time, they've got new material too. The fiurst album since 1982 is to be released in September, and a new single in the next few weeks.

I am a HUGE Who fan. I have every record, and all the solo albums (except Daltrey's). But I wish they would finally call it quits.

The Who survived the death of Moonie. As unique as he was, The Who found some pretty good drummers to fill his shoes. But John Entwistle's power and sound was so unique and such an integral part of their sound that there is no way you cannot miss it.

The original Live At Leeds album is probably the greatest live album ever made, and trying to reprise that without Moonie and The Ox belittles it. Kinda like when they tried to reprise Woodstock some years ago - it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Quite a few fans think that too. The trouble always was that Entwistle's sound was so unique, they couldn't hope to replace with a like for like. They've got an outstanding musician (they'd have to - you can't have an average bass player in that role) in the shape of Pino Palladino, but the sound is definitely different.

I don't know, part of me agrees with you, part of me thinks that whilst they can still put on such extraordinary shows, it's great to still be able to see them. If you've heard any of their recent performances, they're still brilliant performers, but I do suspect that with the album coming out, this huge tour - bigger than they've ever done - and the return to Leeds, everything points to this being a last blast before calling it a day.

Should have sent me a message a few days ago. They were on pre-sale to those in the know, I could have pointed you in the right direction.
