"He is in the storm, he and Daltrey both, performing with a vibrancy for which their successors merely strive, the timeless aspects of The Who's manifesto running strong amongst the currents."
Rock Cellar, Quadrophenia tour 2013
It is generally acknowledged among rock fans that The Who in their heyday were the most exciting live band on the planet, with their Live at Leeds album (1970) hailed as the greatest live album of all time.
The compositional skills of Townshend have always been way beyond the conventional, as is proven not only in classic songs like 'My Generation' and 'Baba O'Riley' but also in his two great rock operas (a form he more or less invented single-handed) Tommy and Quadrophenia.
Today, despite the passing of Keith Moon and John Entwistle, The Who remain a potent force on the rock music scene. Their Concert for New York City appearance after the tragedy of 9/11 was a classic, as have been their annual performances at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
In 2006, Pete Townshend wrote The Who's first studio album for the new millennium, Endless Wire and the band toured Europe and the U.S. during 2006 and 2007. Now following their hit Quadrophenia tour, they are taking to the road again, expanding on the previous setlist to celebrate all 50 years of their music-making, proving why they are one of the most enduring and successful rock bands on the planet today.
