The Who’s Final Farewell

The two remaining members of the famous rock band the Who, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend played their final scheduled show in London Friday the 26th. Sam Tabar indicated that despite being towards the tail-end of their more than 50 successful years of rocking, the Who were still able to sell out London’s Hyde Park in advance with 65,000 fans from all ages coming to hear the legends for perhaps their final performance in London.

Although the Who are not unfamiliar with farewell tours, many people are convinced this well be the final tour. Before the start of the show, a video played on a large screen covering the bands more than 50 years of rocking and rolling. Despite their ages, Roger Daltery 71 and Pete Townshend 70 were able to put on a captivating performance showcasing their trademark moves such as the guitar windmill and swinging microphone.

No Who concert would be complete without some sort of tribute to the rest of the band’s fallen members. The Who’s lead guitarist, Pete Townshend reminisced about experiences with former drummer Keith Moon and former bassist Jon Entwistle commenting that he missed them “terribly”. The Who headlined the Glastonbury Festival yesterday and are scheduled for a few stops in the United States. There are still opportunities to see one of the best and most influential rock bands in the world on what very well may be their last tour.
