" The WHO To Set Up Residency In Las Vegas "





" British Rock Legends The WHO have been saying “farewell” since the early 1990s ... and they are about to say “hello” to a lengthy residency in Las Vegas! That's a good thing, considering this past summer's tour by the venerable rockers was a blockbuster critical and financial success!

PETE TOWNSHEND and ROGER DALTREY never sounded better, and their energetic and career-spanning performances sold out almost everywhere they played. The Who also performed all of their legendary rock opera Tommy (a rarity!) for a UK charity benefit this past spring and recently released the DVD of the show, again to much critical acclaim!

With all of this happening, and the fact that Townshend and Daltrey are really enjoying themselves, the two original members and the rest of the band are planning an extended stay in Las Vegas now that another British rock legend, Elton John, is closing out his long run of shows in Sin City.

This last Who tour will probably be the last large-scale jaunt for the two original band members, who are now both in their 70s, and while they are opting out of playing large venues in numerous cities, they are apparently very keen on the idea of setting up for a more lengthy run of performances in one place. That place just happens to be the Colosseum Theater at Caesars Palace, where The Who played a string of shows earlier this year. According to an article in the UK tabloid The Daily Mirror, promoters in Vegas are eager to have another high profile act step in now that Elton John is wrapping up his residency there.

Apparently all that needs to be worked out is the length of the residency and The Who's compensation. While Elton John racked up a total of 450 shows over 13 years, The Who are planning on a much more modest duration of two years, and it's speculated that the payday for The Who could be close to $46 million. Rock on, Pete & Roger!  "

Includes limited edition 12 x 12 art print

The Who were in New York to conclude a gruelling tour on April 4th, 1968, the day that Dr Martin Luther King was assassinated. America was already a country divided; Anti-Vietnam demonstrations, civil rights disturbances and militant student activism. With this turmoil as a backdrop on Friday and Saturday, April 5th & 6th, 1968 The Who performed two incendiary live sets at Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore East on the lower East Side of Manhattan.

The venue had only just re-opened in March by Graham from its previous incarnation as the Village Theatre where the band had played on a couple of occasions the year before. The Who was the first British rock act to headline the Fillmore East and were booked to play four shows over the two nights. However, because of feared social unrest in the wake of Dr King’s assassination, it was decided to compact the shows into one per night.

The Who’s time in New York City in 1968 can best be described as ‘lively’. Keith Moon’s antics with cherry bomb explosives had meant that the band had to move hotels. When installed in the at the plush Waldorf Astoria he then somehow managed to a blow a door off its hinges and, the band had to move once more.

On the morning of the Fillmore rehearsal, the band were photographed for Life magazine and legend has it that the band were so tired from Moon’s antics that they nodded out under the large Union Jack draped over them at the base of the Carl Schurz Monument in Morningside Park. This iconic image was later used as the cover and poster for The Who’s classic film ‘The Kids Are Alright’.

Both nights were recorded by Who manager Kit Lambert with the intention of releasing the results as the Who’s fourth album after The Who Sell Out and before Tommy. Disaster struck when it was discovered that due to faulty equipment or human error only part of the first night was captured. Thankfully the second night was recorded and has now been fully restored and mixed by long time Who sound engineer Bob Pridden (who was responsible the band’s sound on those nights in 1968) from the original four-track tapes. For the 50th anniversary of these legendary shows, the unreleased recordings are to be issued on triple vinyl lp.

Thanks to an acetate reaching the bootleg market in the early ‘70s, the Who’s reputation as rock’s most dynamic live act quickly grew. The show is regarded by fans as something of the ‘holy grail’ of Who live shows equalling the legendary ‘Live At Leeds’ album. The tapes have been meticulously remastered for optimum sound quality and will only serve to enhance The Who’s reputation as the best live act of the time.

The 3LP set include three Eddie Cochran numbers; My Way, Summertime Blues and the never before released Who version of C’mon Everybody.

Also featured is a rare cover version of Fortune Teller written by Allen Toussaint, originally recorded by Benny Spellman but made famous by The Rolling Stones. These shows also showcased Tattoo and Relax from The Who Sell Out as well as stunning extended versions of A Quick One and My Generation which becomes a 30-minute jam with a the climax of guitar-smashing and drum demolishment!

Deluxe 3 x LP heavyweight vinyl, gatefold sleeve, three printed inner bags & new liner notes and rare photos.
