The Who is coming to CMAC. Tix go on sale 3/24.

I know it's only Roger and Pete...but The Who nonetheless.
It hasn't been "The Who"...

...since Keith Moon died.

All 4 pieces were critical to their creativity and their sound.
The Beatles rhythm section survives

They should form a supergroup.

This. Keith was such an integral element to their sound, and they've never been able to find a suitable replacement. That dn Roger couldn't hit a note with a sledgehammer at this point, but might be interesting to see purely from a novelty aspect. I will forever regret never seeing them with Keith.

Mostly agree. I saw them on their first "final tour" back in '89 or '90. Incredible show. They rocked. Was overshadowed by the fact that I saw the Stones the same week. A friend saw them last summer and said they were still very good live.
Aaah, the memories

First concert I ever attended included the WHO at the Rochester War Memorial in 1967 at the age of 15.

Believe it or not, they were the opening act for Herman's Hermits!

When I saw Pete and Roger in Tampa in April 2015 the drummer was.... Zak Starkey.... so there ya' go.

The show in 2015 was fantastic. First night of the American leg of the Who Turns 50 Tour. Took Roger a couple of songs to get warmed up but his performance on Love Reign O'er Me was about as great as anything I've ever heard live.
