Who Experiences
 
I saw The Who play live about a half-dozen times. I was also lucky to have seen Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and John Entwistle play live with their respected solo projects.
 
Below is a quick list of my Who experiences. I will add more detail at a later date.
 
  • Roger Daltrey - Under A Raging Moon Tour - This was in late 1985 or early 1986. My friend and I drove in a raging snowstorm to see Roger play at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, PA.

  • The Who - Reunion Tour - The summer of 1989 final gave me the chance to see The Who play live! Yes! Two back-to-back nights of incredible rock 'n' roll at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, PA.

  • The Who - Quadrophenia - July 20, 1996 - My 26th (or 27th; who's counting these days) birthday. Pretty cool - road trip to Madison Square Garden in NYC, see The Who play again, and then roam around the city that never sleeps. That's a great birthday celebration!

  • The Who - Quadrophenia - I saw the Quadrophenia tour two more times (I think it was the winter and summer of 1997): at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, PA, and the Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ.

  • Pete Townshend Solo - 1998, A Day in the Garden - The best time I ever had experiencing live music, as I stated in the Poetry Cornered section.

  • John Entwistle Solo - Summer, 1999, Atlantic City, NJ - the JEB band played a free concert outside the Hard Rock Cafe.

  • John Entwistle Solo - Winter, 1999, Maddie's Cafe, Frazer, PA - the JEB band jammed hard at this cool bar just three or so miles from my house. John played the best live bass solo I've ever seen or heard!

  • The Who - July 2000, Tweeter Center, Camden, NJ - This was The Who at their finest based on all the times I've seen them. Loud, tight, and a wild rockin' night!

  • The Who - July 2002, Tweeter Center, Camden, NJ - A great show, but rather sad as John had died only a month before. Still, Pete and Roger played their hearts out that night.

  • The Who - September 12, 2006 - Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, PA - opening night of their North American World Tour!

  • The Who - October 31, 2008 - The Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ - The Who rocked! - in Atlantic City - on Halloween! Are you kidding me! Talk about a great time seeing the Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World! It was a pleasure to be able to see this live, one more time... :)

  • Roger Daltrey - Use It Or Lose It Tour - November 14, 2009, The Music Box at the Borgata in Atlantic City, NJ. A cool experience in an intimate setting. Fantastic show. Roger played Who songs, solo songs, and cover songs. I just hope at some point in my life I can sing as well as he does at his age. I'm ready for another!

  • Roger Daltrey - Roger Daltrey Performs "Tommy" Tour - September 21, 2011, The Mann Music Center in Philadelphia, PA. Roger played the entire Tommy album, and it really rocked! He played it much like the original album. After that, he played a great set of Who classics like I Can See For Miles and Baba O'Reily, plus some of his best solo material like Days Of Light and a few selected cover songs. I hope I can still rock like Roger when I am his age.

  • The Who - February 22, 2013 - Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ - The Who played the entire Quadrophenia album, plus a selection of their greatest hits! Fantastic!

  • The Who - March 14, 2016 - Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA - The Who rocked a great selection of songs from their 50 years! A great farewell from touring from the greatest band ever!

  • The Who - July 22, 2017 - Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ - The Who played a selection of their greatest hits! Super, duper awesome!

 
Some of the dates might be a little off, but I'm not sweating it. These were great, intense musical experiences that I will remember the rest of my life.
