For millions of fans around the world, The Who has defined the quintessential rock band for nearly four decades. On November 27, 2000, The Who crowned their six-month North American and U.K. tour with a special evening at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Written by
Seeing The Who in November 2000 in England, at Sheffield Arena, and not realising that it would be the last time that my wife and I would ever get to see them as the remaining three musician's is a great loss, not just to us but to the huge fan base, the musical World and his Family. This Albert Hall gig, sadly, being one of the very last performances with John Entwistle as part of a U.K. Who Tour.
As a typical Who show, it stars off with their first hit from the sixties, I Can't Explain then progresses along with their typical and masterful set of sixties singles and then their seventies album track's.
Keyboards are played by John "Rabbit" Bundrick as well as Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey filling in for the late Keith Moon on drums.
The playing is superb by all and it is Directed very well by Dick Carruthers. The Albert Hall venue is a most impressive gig to play, this is not the first time The Who have played here.
This concert in particular, is the final show of their 2000 World Tour. To mark this and to support the Charity the Teenage Cancer Trust they have given proceeds from this show. Along with the help from the special guest's, to perform along side them, such as Paul Weller, Bryan Adams and Noel Gallagher, Kelly Jones and finally Eddie Vedder.
There can never be another show like this ever again, to watch the most talented Bass player of the last forty years in Rock in action for the last Who show is a must have in any collection.
To be helping Children with such a disability is marvellous.
