After an absence from New Zealand of 40 years, The Who blasted their way through an amazing set at North Harbour Stadium in Auckland last night.
Setlist (courtesy of a fan of called ‘paperlung’, including enthusiastic asides: thanks – ED!):
I Can’t Explain
The Seeker
Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere
Fragments (Hooray!)
Who Are You
Behind Blue Eyes
Sister Disco
Baba O’Riley
Eminence Front (preceded by Pete “I don’t want to play this f***ing song…”)
(Short interlude for amp problem)
Love Reign O’er Me
(Longer interlude. Pete issues death threats to amp, which is clearly unaware of how its forerunners would have been dealt with)
You Better You Bet
My Generation (“We broke it, you fix it. My Generation f***ed up. Bad.”)
Won’t Get Fooled Again
Pinball Wizard
Amazing Journey
(A bit of) It’s A Boy
Sparks (Hooray again!)

Roger said that 41 years between visits was too long and they wouldn’t leave it that long again. Pete added that it would be difficult to leave it another 41 years!
