The Who in Lisbon - news article
The historical band made to parade, in more than two hours, the best moments of its career.
With Pavilion Atlantic far from to reach capacity respectable (the ones will not have been more than 3000 souls that had been a refugee to the calling), the The Who inaugurated European digression with one more than spectacle of two hours where Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey and remain band (in which if it detaches, on the drums, Zak Starkey - son of the Beatle Ringo Starr) had given, literally, the liter.
The start was powerful, with “I Can't Explain” (the first success of the band, dated of 1965) to show that the The Who that one had not forgotten the past most remote -, after all, that more memory would despertaria in a plateia where they coexisted distinct generations. Of the gold phase of the group they would still interpret “Pinball Wizard”, “The Kids Are Alright” (already in straight final), “My Generation” and the musculado “The Seeker”. Of it are of the alignment had been classic as “Pictures of Lily” and “Substitute”.
Good shelter had also had the three subjects that the band loaned “franchising” CSI, “Who Are You”, “Won't Get Fooled Again” and “Baba O'Riley”. Less outstanding, as it would be to wait, the incursions in Endless Wire, the last album of the band, who includes the mini-opera rock “Wire & Glass”, touched in the complete one. “The Man In the Purple Dress”, not ombreando with the material oldest, was worthy representative of the modern times.
Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, for the first time in Portugal, had been equal itself proper: the first one made to circle the microphone times without account; as it treated the guitar for you, applying its unmistakable “mill of wind” in riffs more weighed. The guitarist approached of the microphone some times and, in one set acoustic, demonstrated conserved vocal qualities well.
The first time of the The Who in Portugal it did not have, is certain, the public whom it deserved (the abundance of concerts of the season goes making victims…), but Townshend and accomplices live-in intensely. Forty years later, the rock still runs to them in the veins.
