An amazing concert!
22 March 1999 | by (Beverly Hills, California) – See all my reviews

This concert is simply magnificent. Although they are not as good as they were with Keith Moon, Simon Phillips compensates for Moon's loss. Steve Bolton is good with guitars, but does little to add to Townshend's work. The brass section was poorly organized but did their job, as did the backup singers. Rabbit was good as always, and I was happy to see Jody Linscott on percussion. They performed Tommy with the exclusion of a few songs, and then they're greatest hits. Every song in this concert is amazing and is a must see for every fan of classic rock!
