SO THE WHO are back on tour doing Quadrophenia, and I really want to go.
They aren't sniffing anywhere around here - no St. Louis or Quad Cities shows. They canceled the Quad Cities show the last go-round, now that I think about it. The nearest show is in Chicago, five hours away, and it's tempting.
Then again, do I want to sit in the nosebleeds for $50 pop, or pony up $150 for a floor seat?
In the band's prime, The Who blew everybody away live. Not sure now that Pete and Roger are pushing 70 they will be as good, but the reviews from the early shows are good.
I'm making excuses for not going, such as high ticket prices, the long drive up there, gas prices, missing from the store during a busy time, playing the next night with The Burgers, etc.
Then again, this might be the last chance to see them. Of course we said that in 82 and 89. Guh.
Might come down to a coin flip. We'll see ....
