Comments: This was the first time I had seen Heart since I saw them opening for April Wine in Oshawa back in the day. While I was less than impressed the first time around, this second time was a revelation. I could scarce believe it was the same band.

Edit this setlist | More The Who setlists

Comments: This was the last date on tour.The one and only time I have managed to catch The Who live was after the passing of Keith Moon. While Kenny Jones was a decent drummer, he just wasn’t the same. Don’t get me wrong, the concert was excellent and the song selection very good. I suppose since I only got to see one Who show, this was as good a one to see as any.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Floyd.

      Yes, I remember it being very hot. Other than the fact he had played on Elton John’s Honky Chateau I had absolutely no idea who Jean Luc-Ponty was. It was a great show.

      And I do vaguely remember something about a jail. Refresh my memory if you can fill in some details. I seem to remember there were a lot of alcohol and drug busts at this gig. Then again, that seemed to be pretty common at rock “festivals” back in the day 🙂


    2. Hello Aardvark and Floyd,
      Just cruising by, reminiscing this fantastic show. Despite being a huge Keith Moon fan, this was also my first The Who show. I was 16 and it was the very best The Who concert of several seen later; trying to chase that buzz down. I fell in love with The J. Geils Band that day too. I had always loved hard rockin’ blues. Magic Dick and Peter Wolf were stellar that day. I should like to add that it was not Jean Luc Ponty that opened. It was Nash the Slash. Heart was pretty good. However, The Who with the horn section for the Quadrophenia material is what set this one apart from all other shows.
