Who Apperances
Listen to The Who





Wolfgang's Vault, one of our sponsors, is currently webcasting two Who shows:

Live from the Spectrum in Philadelphia 12/04/1973
Live from the Capital Center in Largo, MD 12/06/1973

Click here to go to Wolfgang's Concert Vault


One of the Odds & Sods members found this interesting tidbit on Wolfgang's forums:

"As many of you already know, we've had a show up on the Vault for a while
now from The Who identified as the Philadelphia 12/4/73 show. A few Vault
regulars have stated in a separate forum thread that at least some tracks
from this show are actually from The Who's 12/6/73 show at the Capital
Center in Largo, MD, and they are correct. What has been on the Vault was
an amalgam that was created for a single King Biscuit Flower Hour radio
broadcast."

One day like today...
1967
Mono mixes of "Jaguar" and "Rael" are prepared for the upcoming album. It is at this point that the "Part 2" section of "Rael is chopped off, not to return until the 1994 30 Years of Maximum R&B boxset.

1968
Decca/MCA's own Who oldies collection Magic Bus - The Who On Tour hits the U.S. charts. The album gets bad marks in the Underground press for a title that could mislead buyers into thinking it was a live album (read Rolling Stone magazine's review for an example). Despite, or perhaps because of the confusion, the album reaches #39 on the Billboard charts making it The Who's first Top Forty album in the U.S. The LP also features a rare, excellent stereo mix of "Magic Bus" along with a wonderfully garish psychedelic cover.

1969
The classical music reviewer for The New York Times, Clive Barnes, discusses The Who and rock operas in an article. Barnes, who attended one of the recent Fillmore East shows, says the band played their music too loud but, nevertheless, dubs Tommy "an enormous success" and predicts that a new kind of opera could arise from it. That night The Who perform at the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh. The James Gang is the supporting act. After this night, The Who split up for separate vacations in the U.S. Pete flies down to Florida with roadie "Wiggy" Wolff to spend the time at his old friend Tom Wright's father's farm. One night "at three in the morning drunk out of my brain" Pete writes The Who's next single "The Seeker."",

1970
The Who play in Stoke

1973
The massive Quadrophenia double album is released in the U.K. However the initial run sells out quickly and, due to a shortage of vinyl caused by the OPEC oil embargo, additional copies are not pressed for another week and a half. Also on this day part two of Pete's interview about Quadrophenia is broadcast on Rockspeak.

1989
The Who perform at Wembley Arena in London. Roger's voice gives out toward the end and he is forced to leave the stage. Pete wraps it up singing "Behind Blue Eyes" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" all on his lonesome.

1991
Two Rooms, The Elton John-Bernie Taupin tribute album featuring The Who's last studio recording to date, "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting," enters the U.K. charts. It reaches #21.

1996
The Who play in Las Vegas
