The Who at Jones Beach (9/13/06)a
A good (but not great) show by The Who, marred only by a 40 minute soft spot in the middle of their soon to be released album, Wire and Glass, which, of course, nobody knew (an EP came out on August 30th '06, with the full CD scheduled for a October 30th release).
I always thought The Who never got their due relative to the great English bands of the 1960s and 70s. Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Pink Floyd -- The Who are easily in that pantheon, and yet they seem to be perceived as a notch below. I can't explain.
A good band behind the 2 surviving members. The drummer was particularly sharp -- Zak Starkey, son of the Beatles' Ringo Starr, did a surprisingly excellent job as Keith Moon's replacement.

One interesting aspect of the show was the taping for DVD of the
show. The band will offer for sale sale a CD/DVD of your precise
concert via The Music Store.
