Superbowl - where to watch?

Recommended Posts

I didn't see The Who part, just listened while I was cooking, quietly at home.

 

As much as I liked and admire The Who, I walked out midway through one of their concerts at the Long Beach Arena in California a few years ago.

 

It wasn't completely because of the band (Ringo's kid on drums was actually impressive), it was the environment.

 

No smoking in the (what used to be a pot-filled haze) arena, and an impossible single file wait for a drink in the lobby (you'd miss the entire event waiting). The kicker was that when my friend fired one up in the outdoor smoking patio, the other concert goers looked at him as though he was crazy. And these people were all older that us! Had they never been to a concert in their day? :dunno:

 

I couldn't believe we walked out on one of the best acts of all time, but it was a case of wrong place, wrong time, wrong expectations.

 

At least we got in for free. The security guy got us in backstage - a strange,dark, maze like walk right out of Spinal Tap that I won't forget. :)

Were they really lip-syncing? I didn't notice that. The singing seemed real to me. They didn't hit all the notes and Pete's backup singing was WRONG so I think it was real. Not great but at least it was real.

 

Cheers,

I remember the Who from years ago and it was ad to see them try to repeat what they were able to do years ago...I want to remember them as when they did Tommy! in that era...
