        The Who Quadrophenia Tour
        The Who returned to Nashville for the first time in many decades.  In fact the last time The Who performed in Middle Tennessee was when they had the original lineup including Keith Moon and John Entwistle.  That was “The Who By Numbers” tour in the mid 1970’s.  Today there are only two original members still living and they are still performing with the energy level and playing ability they’ve always had, even though Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are now in their late 60s.  The Who is currently on tour celebrating the anniversary of the Quadrophenia album.  Brian Hasbrook and Mike Arnold were looking forward to seeing The Who again, but preferred a greatest hits show instead of a album concept show.  Enjoy Mike Arnold’s concert review of The Who in Nashville, TN.

                    Roger Daltrey Concert Review, Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, TN – Friday October 30, 2009

                    Written By James Downing

                    Many legends have graced the stage of the Ryman Auditorium over the years. On Oct 30, 2009 another name was added to that list. Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who made a stop in Nashville on his “Use It Or Lose It Tour.”  It was the biggest crowd that I had seen at The Ryman in a while. There were Who fans from all over. I talked to many who drove many miles to witness Roger at this world famous venue.

                    Around 9pm the lights dimmed and out walked Roger and his band. He approached his mic and said hello and told the crowd what an honor it was to be playing at the Ryman where one of his heroes, Johnny Cash, had played many times. He said he wanted to do this tour to get his butt out from in front of the TV set and to keep his voice in good shape for the up coming Who Tour next year.
