    Thank you, to the entire band and crew for the amazing performance / music. This was the first time I have been able to see the Who perform live and I was overwhelmed. The energy and music were beyond anything I could have imagined. Thank you for coming to Nashville and helping me mark a top-listed “to do” off my bucket list.

  2. An awesome show in Nashville. Pete, Roger and the band were in top form!

    Spectacular, one for the ages. The flashbacks with Keith and John were awesome. Daltry sang his heart out and Pete was amazing plus the rest of the band were tremendous.

    I bought Quadrophenia as soon as it came out in ’73 and wore that record out. I was a senior in high school.In ’75 The Who played at Murphy Center on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University.I missed it and have been kicking myself for the last 37 years. I was at the concert in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena and it was fantastic. To finally see Pete and his guitar was awesome and Roger’s voice was incredible.the band as a whole and the sound was excellent. Thank you for coming to Nashville and letting a 56 year old dude,finally. get to see, hear and experience The Who and Quadrophenia.

    First time to see them after all these years.
    The show left me stunned. Far exceeded anything
    I expected.

  12. Fantastic photos! Let me just publicly thank you SO much for making it to Nashville, and playing my favorite album, to boot! Hopefully Rog and Pete can do an intimate show together at the Ryman someday!

  17. Dan says:

    My sincere thanks for coming to Nashville. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the performance!…Days later, I still find myself reflecting on the show…Literal musical transcendence.

  18. John C. Saccomandi says:

    Goin’ Saturday 12-8-12 to Wachovia Center (Phila). I have seen them every time in the US since Kenny Jones. I was just a young teen 15 when Keith passed. For those drummers who Idle Keith as I do — please read his autobiography by Pete Fletcher. Great Great Stuff. God Bless the “orrible oo.”

  19. Lyndagrace says:

    Terrofic photos. Thank you.
    …on fire!!

    Amazing! I was at the earlier Duluth, GA show, what a difference a month later can make! The guys were tighter, more engaged in the crowd and the show- probably the best I’ve ever seen the Who, other than Atlanta in 2000! Pete was especially on fire! Tea And Theatre is such a great closer- very emotional! You guys RULE!

  21. Dave Wallace says:

    I was at the Nashville show. I finally got to see The Who, and was just blown away. Fantastic performance with a lot of energy! Also the sound was the best I ever heard in the Bridgestone arena. It was clear, crisp, and every instrument could be heard. I enjoyed the tribute to Keith & John. Glad they are still rocking after all these years!

  22. So annoyed I didn’t get to see the Who at Bridgestone as I live here in town, but ws heading out of town for business that night. I do have VIP tickets (Nth row) for just a mere few weeks now. Really can’t wait! I haven’t had good seats to an arena concert since I saw Page and Plant during their tour (Of course I caught Roger at the Ryman in Nashville and he was pretty awesome… I would have paid even more to see Pete there too).

    My last Who gig was in Atlanta a few years back, and it was the best show I had seen, at least since my first show during the 80’s 🙂
