Worst performance ever
We were discussing that too, but after the wardrobe malfunction, the sponsors want guaranteed family viewing. Imagine Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga next year! Yea sure. Bridgestone wanted ad time not controversy.
Did you really expect them to sound like a remastered CD ? I had a great time listening to some great old rock classics.
I agree. They were playing to the live crowd, not the TV audience. My guess is most of the people who attend the SuperBowl are from the Who Generation. I enjoyed it.
I thought whoever was playing the backup was great. Daltry sounded like a lounge act covering Who songs. Townsend? I don't know what he was doing. Some air guitar and scratchy vocals.
Sometimes retirement is a good thing
Actually, I think one of the best in years. Simple and rough.
Maybe next year they can get someone a little more contemporary for ya like Michael Jackson
Not my favorite halftime show ever. It wouldn't have been so bad if they hadn't chosen to do Teenage Wasteland. The disconnect between the performance and the song pointed it out for me in a way the others didn't. Those guys trying to do a youth anthem? Ouch!
ringer, you are right but the nostalgia of having The Who for the Super Bowl was fantastic.
I saw The Who live twice including a 1973 concert that was unbelievable here in Atlanta.
I grew up in that era and that era is when the Super Bowl came into greatness.
We thought it was great and it was live unlike a Black Eyed Pea concert where 90% of it is piped in crap.
Of course Vodka might have added a little to the nostalgia of it last night.
