Sound: The sound at the KC stadium, as expected form The Who, was amazing. The football stadium gave great acoustics. Pete Townshend, lead guitar and vocals, used various coloured Custom Fender Strats pumped through 8 Fender combos, Pino Palladino, bass, used a Fender Precision Bass (red) pumped through a 2 head, 4 cab Ampeg stack and Roger Daltrey used the immense power supplied by the bands huge PA system to blast through his unique vocals. The overall sound was very bassy, well more bassy than Boston for example, and Pete's guitar sounded slightly tinny in places. These were only minor discrepencies which didn't affect the overall amazing sound that The Who provide at every gig they play. // 8

Perfomance: The playlist included: Can't Explain, The Seeker, Who Are You, Baba O'Riley, Won't Get Fooled Again, My Generation, Relay, Emminence Front, Fragments, Man In A Purple Dress, Tea and Theatre plus many other great songs. Pete and Roger gave a great performance as ever, with windmilling and mic twirling adding the atmosphere. At the back of the stage there were 4 mobile screens on which a multitude of images and movies were played during each song, with clips from The Who's early days and scenes from Quadrphenia among others. Pete and Roger also bantered with the crowd as reminiscent of Live At Leeds. Overall it was an awesome gig! // 9

Overall Impression: KC Stadium, Hull, England, 26th May 2007. Jackson Analogue from the Isle Of Wight, Who were very commendable, and The Ordinary Boys were supporting The Who. The tickets for standing cost 35.00 but the tickets for seats were a bit more expensive. Luckily I was stood right at the front near the barriers which put me within spitting distance of Roger and Pete. The gig was amazing; it had everything a gig should have. It had dancy songs (My Generation), slower songs (Behind Blue Eyes) and great interaction between the performers and crowd. It was well woth the money and I can only hope my financial Status allows me to attend many, many future gigs. Long live The Who. // 10
