The Who- Pinball Wizard medley- Toronto 12-17-82

The Who’s Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey  embarked on their final tour  in 2015 to mark their fiftieth anniversary. These “final tour” seemingly cicadian periodic announcements by Townshend and Daltrey never fail to bring a smile to my face, as by my count this would now be the band’s third “final” concert tour after similar pronouncements in 1982 and again in 1989. A much-bootlegged “final” show at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens has been circulating for years, but this performance of the Tommy  medley that night from the Redbeard archives is official and far superior. – Redbeard
