Cancelling Shows

Pete made it clear somewhere that he doesnt want to show disrespect to Roger by going
on without him.It's a disappointment for the San Antonio and Mexico fans but the Tampa
fans got their rescheduled show.I was 4th row from the stage on March 13th at the first
Tampa show that was postponed.I must admit,there was a nasty buzz in the air when
Roger walked off and there was a ten minute break in between before anyone knew
what was going to happen,and then Pete came out and announced a reschedule
two weeks from that point.Thank goodness for that.I would not want to see the 
band go on without Roger to be honest.The hardcore WHO fans would of been ok
with Pete going on and doing the leads but the mainstreamers most likely would
not go for that.

Hey folks,
  Realize this is old news at this point, but anyone agree with me that it was 
really lame of The Who to cancel a show because Roger couldn't sing? On with the 
show! It's not like the band doesn't have another lead singer. Personally, if 
I'd gone to the trouble of going to the venue that night and Roger went down, 
I'd rather have heard Pete sing instead of banking on the possibility of a 
re-scheduled show. And why not make something special out of adversity? I'm sure 
the band knows anywhere from 20 to 30 songs and Pete must be able to remember 
the words to at 10 or 15 of them off the top of his head. What's the big deal? A 
show with Pete fronting The Who beats no show at all.
