Punk and the Godfather
The Kids Are Alright
Review by Lauren Eastman
The Who put on a fantastic show at CMAC Performing Art Center in the NYS Finger Lakes region in Canandaigua , NY. The outdoor amphitheatre has 5000 seats and another 10,000 lawn seating.
Jon Button does a tremendous job playing bass and deepens the true rock sound. Later in the show Pete was joking with him that he was too loud.
Roger's voice was in great form especially on Love Reign where he hit notes masterfully. The crowd was treated to The Punk and the Godfather during the Quadrophenia segment of the show.
Pete did not do his Birdman pose. It seemed like he was going to but stopped because he seemed to be having sound issues.
As usual the final song was a roaring version of WGFA . Unfortunately the newly slimmed down Pete did not attempt a slide. The crowd enjoyed the show thoroughly and the band seemed to play off the crowd's energy and be enjoying themselves too.
After introducing the band, Roger lovingly introduced Pete as his mate of many years. Pete then called Roger his brother. The love between them seems genuine and is a beautiful thing for a long time fan to witness.
