The Who

Fri, 16 May 1969:

New York, NY, Fillmore East


No known setlist


Bruce Steinberg confirmed the show. He wrote: "They played three nights, May 16-18, with second- and third-billed bands Sweetwater and It's A Beautiful Day, respectively. (I was roadie, harp player, and photographer for It's A Beautiful Day on this tour and was at every show.)" Lou Rainer about the concert: "On this night while The Who were in the middle of Tommy the Fillmore East was evacuated because of a fire in the building next door. A NYC police officer jumped on stage and began yelling 'FIRE!' and was quickly 'kicked' off the stage by Pete. He was later arrested and released after claiming he did it to keep the crowd calm. The building was evacuated peacefully and the 11:30 late show was cancelled for Friday and rescheduled for Sunday."
