Looking to substitute your boring weekend for a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience? Whether you’re in a teenage wasteland or your generation is closer to “My Generation,” The Who will rock you out of your seat and show you how they cemented their place in music history. As composers, they are credited with originating the “rock opera” and contributed to the development and popularization of the concept album medium. As live performers and entertainers, they are hailed as “The Godfathers of Punk,” having pioneered instrument destruction as a means of expression, protest and violent entertainment!
Formed in 1964 by guitarist Pete Townshend, vocalist Roger Daltry, bassist John Entwistle (R.I.P.) and drummer Keith Moon (R.I.P.), the band now known as the Who evolved from two previous outfits: an R&B and skiffle-influenced band called the Confederates, and another heavily R&B-influenced group, the Detours. After several lineup and name changes, the group proceeded as a four piece and began to draw an ever-growing following of Mods, equivalent to today’s hipsters, who craved the band’s brand of hard edged rhythm and blues, which came to be termed “Maximum R&B.” Don’t let the labels fool you though! Even in its earliest days, this group was laying the foundation for what would become hard rock, in all of its instrument smashing, windmilling, pyrotechnic glory. Townshend himself is a victim of the band’s live shows, having sustained damage to his hearing when Moon stuffed his bass drum with explosives and set it off right behind Townshend at the end of a performance!
Nearly fifty years, 100 million records sold, a handful of reunions, a Super Bowl halftime show and an Olympic closing ceremony later, The Who are still selling out stadiums around the world, taking their “Quadrophenia and More” tour mobile. Now is your chance to pay tribute to music royalty, but don’t get fooled again!
