Ilo - Wednesay 26th February - The Bedford, Balham

Brief review: Free show at the Bedford featuring a number of their favourite artists including the excellent "Ilo" (previously Ilona) who we've seen a few time now. She and the band were on good form and we even spotted Dave Boyce from the Quireboys in the audience with regular Ilo supporter Dave "Bucket" Colwell.

Who's Who - Saturday 15th February - 229 Club, London


Brief review:
 
You may think after 4 Who shows in 3 days, that a change of music would be required, but as this is the last appearance from the drummer "Moonie" - then we thought it would be appropriate to pay our resects. A great evening in a really nice venue (not been here before).

The Who - Friday 14th February (Show 2) - Prizm, Kingston


Brief review:
 
The last of the 4 shows - and the first to sell out in seconds. This original one was to mark the 50th anniversary of "Live At Leeds". A nice "Live At Kingston" T Shirt was available (as was limited collectable lithograph). It has been a true honour and privilege to somehow grab tickets for these shows - and thanks to Banquet Records for putting them on and the Who for playing them.

The Who - Friday 14th February (Show 1) - Prizm, Kingston


Brief review:
 
Show 3 of 4 - the early Friday show. 3/4 of the way though the residency. Still plenty of mistakes, but it's clear the band are enjoying these shows. As are the audience.

The Who - Wednesday 12th February (Show 2) - Prizm, Kingston


Brief review:
 
Show 2 of 4 - the Wednesday evening show. Pete admitted that despite reservations, he and Roger were actually enjoying the shows. There was also a bit of a rant about the nearby Bentalls centre.

The Who - Wednesday 12th February (Show 1) - Prizm, Kingston


Brief review:
 
Show 1 of 4 over two nights at the Prizm nightclub in Kingston. As you can imaging there had been a scramble for tickets from Banquet records for the Who's smallest venue show for 40 odd years. People had come from across the globe and after a slightly hesitant start and a few mistakes, the acoustic set was greeted with great enthusiasm. It included the live debut of a a couple of tracks from the new album, called "WHO".
