Last Son of The Miracle
Went to see The Who on Friday night in Derby. A mate managed to get tickets for £7.50 each the night before, so obviously I couldn't turn that down.

You know what I was pleasantly surprised. They played the songs I knew, the orchestra complimented the songs well, Roger and Pete sounded great for blokes reaching their 80s (Roger's vocals on Love Rein O'er Me blew me away), and the rain stopped in time for the gig! So all in all, I can't complain for £7.50, I think I paid more for a pint.
I was at the O2 for their show on Wednesday, paid slightly more than £7.50 for my ticket.
I was pleasantly surprised too, great performances from all, recognised more of the set than I expected (though I hadn't done my homework so still got a bit lost at a few points) and was surprised at how diverse their music can be. Had a funny moment where Roger had to restart Behind Blue Eyes as he was having monitor issues, having apparently been late for the soundcheck. Seems whatever caused Dave Murray to be late for Saturday's gig was still causing problems.
