ROCKIN' a Friday night in WHOville'
Boardwalk Hall Atlantic City RoCKED with the timeless classic rock of THE WHO!
Opening Act: Vintage Trouble,
Rockin' Soul group from LA California. GREAT energy and musicianship BUT
unnecessary* The legendary status of THE WHO doesn't require opening support; Bummed that I rushed through a great dinner nearby. However: glad
to have caught the eye of a nearby listener (Dave) who insisted he buy me a beer* A
on the beer D+
on the intrusion of an opening act that I showed up for thinking The WHO
was going on at 7:30.(hell, that's great, because they're old
, I told wife)**
Quadrophenia in it's entirety then the hits! A
Favorite song: 5:15
LoVE it! Taped it on my phone and loaded it on Facebook feed at 100.7 WZXL
realize you can hold the phone upside down recording-sorry)**
Performers: Daltry! Townshend! Ringo's kid-Zack Starkey
on drums! B+
would have given frontman an A but Daltry's voice was faltering at best, hitting certain notes*
Three keynoardists needed for Quadrephenia story and it worked, Brass section outstanding bringing the production front and center. A
Crowd: Sold Out! Enthusiastic!
White-haired smokers passing a joint to each other right in front of us!@^^!!
Sang along with the familiar songs. Baba O'reily
really loud (check out video loaded on FB)
Audience participation: B+
To those who saw The WHO
in concert with the entire band intact, Entwhistle, Moon-I SaLUTE
you! BUT I had a fantastic time seeing the surviving (2) do it up for the crowd one more time!
