Kaboom ... Loud ... Wild ...and Fun! Pete and Kieth came out laughing and Keith did a sommersault before climbing into his drum kit. Long Tommy set, great Fooled... Roger was in great form whipping the mike smiling and having fun.

This show is reportedly one that took its toll on Pete's hearing and I remember him wincing and rubbing his ear with his shoulder early in the set.

Lots of high jumps and windmills. Lasers, bright lights and the wildest crowd I have ever been a part of. The crowd was pushing and shoving so hard I remember being pulled from side to side and back to front with little or no control over what direction I was going...

I was very close in front of Pete and the crowd was passing people who couldn't take the crush, out and over the centerfield wall...I wouldn't have wanted it any other way...John's bass was very loud in the mix and he got off on Dreaming...Only slight complaint, no Quadrophenia and not enough By Numbers, both records of which I am a big fan...About 100 minutes long...One of the best shows I've ever seen and I've been to plenty...You had to be there!!!!! Long live the Who.
