I was at this show and was blown away by the awesome power of the Who.

This show took place just a couple of weeks after the disaster in Cleveland (where 11 were killed). So when some shithead launched a bottle rocket at the band, during the first couple of songs, Townshend immediately stopped the music and announced that "the next time that happens, we will cancel this show". The fans near the idiot who launched the devices pointed him out to the security guards, he was summarily ejected, to the cheers of the crowd, and the show went on... and what a
show it was.

Awesome horn section on the Quadrophenia songs, esp 5:15.... Daltrey in fine form ... Rabbit kicked ass on "Baba O' Reilly" ... the band was at top form throughout.
