    Every once in a while everything works out. We have booked our 7* trip for early August, the air has been booked however we have held off on the hotel and now we've received notification that the Who are playing while we are there. My wife has never seen them and is a big fan, I saw them at the Pontiac Silverdome in 1975 which was the first concert ever at the dome and the loudest most echo filled one I have seen. We love the Who and makes the trip for us....Rick

    Always ready to go to Vegas. But, if we can find some great concert to "justify" the trip, it is even better. Have fun.

    I saw them once and it was a good time. I would have loved to have seen them with Keith Moon.

    We were ground floor seating, I remember the tickets were $25 for General admission floor and I think $10 for stadium seats. I can still see how messed up Moon was playing the drums. It was alright but the dome was not a good place to see a concert let alone the WHO. Townsend was all over the stage. My freshman year of college '75, many many years ago.................Rick

    Have seen them twice now, including at the Colosseum last May. Saw this announcement yesterday, looks like I'll be going to Vegas in early August!

    I saw then last year at Caesars and I have to say it was the best show I have ever seen in all the time I have been going Vegas.

    I have always wanted to see the Who. aug 9 or 11 would be my best bet. it would be awesome to see them in vegas. I just might have to splurge. I just really hate paying for concerts anymore.

    Don't forget, they are in their 70's and only half the Who!

    You wouldn't know it by listening to them perform....or watching them for that matter.

    When I saw them 4 or 5 years ago, Roger had his shirt unbuttoned for half the show. I'm barely a decade removed from being a Division I athlete, and that guy is in way better shape than me!

    Maybe but he doesn't sign with his pecks. I saw them last year or the year before in Vegas. They were ok.

    Yah saw them most recently in Vancouver. Very good show. Amazing for their ages. Daltrey is a bit of a goof but they are great musicians.

    As Roger Daltrey himself put it: They are the world's most expensive Who cover band.

    Everything is set up, the tix are set (our host has taken care of them for us, best available). We are staying at Planet Hollywood but looking forward to seeing em...a half a Who is better than no Who at all. Also Rogers voice in '75 was pretty bad live but Townsend's playing was worth my $25 admission. Will be nice to hear them at the Coliseum...........Rick

    Last year when I saw them they opened up with Who are you. Pretty apt as it was used as the theme to CSI Vegas. Saved the best till last and ended with Won't Get Fooled Again. Daltrey still hit the scream towards the end of the song as well.

    The Who show coincides with my August visit and have tix for the show on the 9th. I saw them once back in the early 80's on their farewell tour, (lmao). Enjoyed the show, but I really went to go see The Clash, the warm up band. Looking forward to the show.
