Quadrophenia and More
Africkenmazing! I saw Quadrophenia and More yesterday in The 02 Dublin. It was the most amazing concert I have ever been too! The whole show was spectacular with a fabulous atmosphere from the crowd.
It would be a difficult job for any act to open for The Who but Vintage Trouble were the perfect choice. They got the whole audience on their feet and the lead vocalist Ty Taylor was charismatic and confident. He LEAPT off stage and performed standing on the chairs in the crowd to huge applause.
And then THE WHO!
A message was put up before it started:
“Roger is allergic to smoke and would greatly appreciate if you would stick to brownies ;-)”.
Good advice for the very emotional and swaying young men who really liked the lighting. One man behind us cried through most of the concert and gave a single person standing ovation whenever Keith Moon’s picture would appear on-screen. “Stand up for Keith Moon!” he kept shouting hoarsely. “Stand up for Keith Moon!” And damn straight, we did.
The played the entire Quadrophenia album then followed up with old favourites including Baba O’Riley, Behind Blue Eyes and Who are you. Pure Rock Ecstasy. Baba o’Riley is my all-time favourite song. If my life was a movie that would be my happy ending song. If you are a fan and they are playing anywhere near you I urge you to go! All in all it was a fantastic night and one I will never forget:)
