3. My wife's idea and purchase. She loves Pete Townshend, but has always been lukewarm on The Who.

She mostly liked the work from 'Who Are You' and later, and of course Pete's 80s solo work.

Then a few months ago I made her listen to Quadrophenia, which is very Pete-centric and simply deep. I think a lot of people who are familiar with The Who, think mostly of Tommy and Who's Next. It was like she suddenly discovered a 'Sgt. Pepper' and listened to it over and over.

Now we're going to see them. Last time I saw them was over thirty years ago.

7. Final tour date announced.

The Who Announce Final U.S. Show: Who Cares Benefit For Teen Cancer
America Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, And Yale-New Haven
Children's Hospital



Legendary rockers The Who and Elvis Costello & The Imposters will
perform an intimate concert Thursday, February 28 at New York City’s The
Theater at Madison Square Garden to benefit Teen Cancer America,
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and Yale-New Haven Children’s
Hospital.

Teen Cancer America is igniting a movement around changing the way teens and young adults with cancer are treated and supported from the point of diagnosis. Funds raised from the February 28 benefit concert will go towards helping hospitals develop units designed to give the very best chance of a positive outcome both physically and emotionally. In
addition to state-of-the-art facilities to keep patients occupied during
long stays in hospital, the units will strive to provide an environment
where they can meet others in a similar situation, helping to support
their transition between teen and adulthood.

This represents the first-ever New York-area fundraiser The Who have
performed for Teen Cancer America; Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are
the driving force behind Teen Cancer America. After more than a decade
of working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK, they bring their passion
for making a difference in the lives of teens and young adults with
cancer to the United States. This special show marks The Who’s final
2013 U.S. show (where they’ll perform their greatest hits).
