The Who Hits Back! Tour: Madison Square Garden, New York City, NY, 26 May 2022
May 26, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the Garden . . . well, we most certainly have done that. One of our most favourite places to play. A place we like to call our NYC home from home – the wonderful Madison Square Garden. Our penultimate date on this first leg of The Who Hits Back! Tour 2022 and we’re here tonight with our special guests – all the way from England too – The Wild Things. They supported us recently at our Teenage Cancer Trust gig at the Royal Albert Hall in London and they are just the best. Make sure you catch their act because you’r going to love ‘em.
