|The Who, Leslie Mendelson|
Caught The Who on the first show of the second leg of their Moving On! tour on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden, with opening act Leslie Mendelson.
Love and Murder
Leslie played an acoustic set, accompanied by guitarist Steve McEwen. She played some of her best material, such as "Jericho" off of her Love and Murder album, some stuff from a forthcoming new album, a couple of Dr. John covers, and "A Human Touch", a song she collaborated on with Jackson Browne.
Daltrey and Townshend played with a full band, plus an orchestra for most of the night. They did a mini-Tommy set, a mini-Quadrophenia set, a pair of new songs from their forthcoming album, and a bunch of their classics. They were a little rusty, as this was their first show after taking the whole summer off. But it was a really fun show.
|The setlists for both Leslie Mendelson and The Who are up at setlist.fm. There's a full write-up of the show on my blog at longislandmusicguy.blogspot.com.|
|Glad to hear a good report. I'm going next week @ Fenway Park. Really looking forwatd to it!|
|They were a little rusty on Sunday night, but I think by the time they get to Fenway, they'll be fully ready to roll. |
|I heard this might be their last time round, wouldn't miss it for anything.|
|I suspect it will be, which is one of the main reasons I went.|
