Concert Review for The Who Superbowl Halftime Show

The Who performs at halftime during Super Bowl XLIV in Miami
Random thoughts on The Who's Super Bowl halftime performance:

  • I kind of have an issue with them billing themselves as The Who with Keith Moon dead since 1978 and John Entwistle dead since 2002. I know bands go on after personnel changes, but damn guys, the whole rhythm section is pushing up daisies. Why not bill as Daltrey and Townsend?
  • Pinball Wizard was a huge mistake. If Daltrey can't hit the high notes anymore, just skip it.
  • The light show was outstanding, and Townsend showed he still has significant guitar chops.
  • When Pete Townsend's shirt came up during one of his patented windmill moves to reveal his dead-fish old man gut, I about tossed my football snacks.
  • Who Are You and Won't Get Fooled Again were really solid.

Of all the recent halftime performances, this was pretty darn forgettable.
