Palladia has been showing tons of old and new Who concerts lately and I have been drawn in. Yeah, it's only 2 of them but would this be an option as a headliner? Maybe they play all of Quadrophenia.

Thoughts?

it's been brought up in the past, but YES to the Who.

Tommy > Quadrophenia

Flaming Lips into the Who would be incredible.
And just imagine Tommy ringing out over the desert...
"see me, feel me..."

I would absolutely love to see the Who. The first classic rock band i really got into.

My all-time favorite classic rock act, and a superb live act too. They have been rocking festivals for 40+ years, and they would put on a great show.

I fully support this idea.

Pete Townsend got into a lot of trouble with the police in the UK for downloading kiddie porn and I wonder if that affects his ability to travel to the US?

Townshend Charge Dropped

No child porn downloads found on seized computer

Augustin Sedgewick, Rolling Stone, May 7, 2003

After an investigation that lasted nearly four months, police in London cleared Pete Townshend yesterday on charges that he downloaded child porn from the Internet. Computer equipment seized by officials from Scotland Yard at the time the Who guitarist's arrest in January failed to turn up any illicit downloads, police said. Investigators did confirm that Townshend had accessed a site containing such images in 1999; as a result, he was listed on a national register of sex offenders.

"From the very beginning," Townshend said in a statement, "I acknowledged that I did access this site and that I had given the police full access to my computers. As I made clear at the outset, I accessed the site because of my concerns at the shocking material available on the Internet to children as well as adults, and as part of my research toward the campaign I had been putting together since 1995 to counter damage done by all kinds of pornography on the Internet, but especially any involving child abuse."

Just after his arrest -- part of an international Internet porn sting called Operation Ore -- Townshend had maintained he accessed the site to research for his autobigraphy, since he suspected he was abused as a child.

In February, Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja was also arrested as part of Operation Ore. He was also cleared without charge in March.

What's there to wonder? The charges were dropped. Why would it affect him. Also, the guy from Massive Attack was also charged and it didn't seem to stop them from touring in the US in 2006 or playing Coachella. The Who also toured the US in 2006. You are dumb. Face it, you are just an idiot who can't think for himself.

The Who would be really underwhelming if they closed a night.

Yeah, that's why I would want them as a Friday headliner. But Baba O'Reily in the desert would make me poop myself in the best kind of way. Save The Prodigy or Bowie for Sunday night

Mogwai at sunset on the mainstage would be as good as Mogwai on the outdoor at night.

The Who live today is massively over-rated in my opinion. It looks and sounds like a tribute band, the energy levels and spontaneity is zero.
I love their music, but it just feels like their best days are long gone.

By the way Pete Townshend accepted a caution for accessing child pornography. He was not cleared. Townshend said, "I accept that I was wrong to access this site, and that by doing so, I broke the law, and I have accepted the caution that the police have given me." As a statutory consequence of accepting the caution, Townshend was entered on the Violent and Sex Offender Register for five years.[13] This would normally prevent travel abroad, but in Townshend's case such restrictions have been waived, making possible his numerous concert performances with and without The Who since receiving the caution.

I agree with this. With only two original members remaining its hard to swallow the allusion of "The Who". It doesn't feel right and that kind of sentiment can be shared in other bands that are missing members from their golden days.

yeah, but for younger people (me) being able to see Roger and Pete together is still pretty fucking cool.
having seen the twoWho and Waters, i can say they are on the same level. that being said, the Who would be as epic as Waters' show was this year.

I just saw them tonight on the opening show of their tour in Detroit, and my friends and I had the same reservations about the quality of the show. THEY FUCKIN' NAILED IT! They have not lost anything, Daltrey's voice was awesome, and Townshend taught a clinic on how some guitar players get better with age. They are still powerful stage performers. Just a magnificent show tonight, and they would be a great addition to the lineup for next year.

I am not a fan of this setlist. It seems too haphazard, I can't really sense a good flow from this set. And I'm 99% sure they won't change it up on the tour at all.

Ringo's son is Zak Starkey, and he has toured with both bands.

It seems ok to me:
I Can't Explain, The Seeker are often played early in the set.
Then lots of Who's Next.
Some Quad towards the end, and some Tommy in the encore.

If I remember correctly, the last tour nearly the entirety of Tommy was played as an encore (somewhere between 35-45 minutes). Then again, I'm biased because of how much I love Tommy
