This is Roger Daltery so of course the singer was extremely good, though not quite as good as he used to be and this was reflected on how he sang the songs - he seems much more mature now. Pete Townshend played a red Fender Stratocaster throughout the concert and a Gibson Acoustic.

Sound: This is Roger Daltery so of course the singer was extremely good, though not quite as good as he used to be and this was reflected on how he sang the songs - he seems much more mature now. Pete Townshend played a red Fender Stratocaster throughout the concert and a Gibson Acoustic. though I not sure which model. I have no idea what instruments the other musicians played, but they all seemed to work well. The new bassist is, of course, not John Entwhistle and he was much harder to hear than in the Who of old, the same goes for the drummer (Zak Starkey- Ringo Starr's son! ) but he was still very good but he's no Keith Moon! But overall the band were great together. // 9
Perfomance: The performance was greet! Pete and Roger told jokes talked to the crowd and did all their old stage tricks (swinging the microphone around and windmilling). They were both incredibly entertaining. I am not sure of the whole set list as I can't remember it all but I can remember that they played most of their hits of old and their newer songs off the Endless Wire album. They opened with 'Can't Explain' which I think was a perfect opening. Other great performances were: 'The Seeker', Won't get fooled again' (which seemed to go on forever! ), 'Pinball Wizard'- which had great visuals on the screens, 'Tea and Theatre'- great acoustic performance at the end of the show. The performance was absolutely great. // 10
Overall Impression: The concert was at the NIA on the 22nd March 2007. I got there halfway through the support act but their instruments kept breaking and going off, so I didn't really here much of them or their name. I loved the show because it was my first proper concert and will stay with me forever. The only thing I hate is that they didn't do Magic Bus! I think the tickets were about 30-40 but I can't remember. If they came back here I would defiantly go again and so would my dad! It was a great concert overall! // 10
