SetlistI Can't Explain
Behind Blue Eyes
Won't Get Fooled Again
Baby Don't You Do It
See Me Feel Me
I was at the concert at the Long Beach Civic auditorium on 10.12.1971. I almost didn't make it in as my friends had tickets and I didn't. I was contemplating my plight outside of the Auditorium when luckily I hooked up with a scalper who sold me a "bleeder" ticket for a reasonable price.
So there I was up in the rafters ready to take on my favorite band. Out came the Who (I don't believe there was a warm-up band). Pete Townshend was wearing a silver jump suit and had a cherry SG strapped on. Daltrey was in blue jeans and a worn T-shirt. Moon literally did cartwheels the entire length of the stage to get to his drum set. John looked rock star and stoic. Townshend strummed a few raw distorted chords and the show began! The set opened with "I Can't Explain", and from there the night ROCKED.
I do believe that's the loudest concert I ever witnessed. It was SO loud ... but it was so good. I will always treasure that night.
First concert I ever saw! My ears rang for days!
There was an opening act named Mylon (Mylon LeFevre), who I didn't like. We had terrible seats, but most of my friends went to the floor, while I found a spot at the railing behind Keith Moon. Great vantage point to watch rock's greatest drummer!
