The Who - Sunday 22nd March - O2 Arena

The first of a big Who week. Up in the "Gods" for this one. Despite that, sound quality was good (although arguably not loud enough) and we where able to enjoy the show. An eclectic setlist ranging from the normal brilliance to the slightly bizarre (A Quick One...) and the slightly tiresome Join Together and Magic Bus.

Great to hear "So Sad About Us" which is an early contender for my most heard live song this year. Pete Townshend was at his sarcastic best/worst with the between song comments. I suspect this makes him an acquired taste for some, but I found it amusing. I also liked his brief "Live At Leeds" intro to My Generation.

If this is to be the start of the "long goodbye" as Roger has described it, let's hope they linger around for a good while yet.
