The show was quite fun. They did the whole Quadrophenia album, and then finished the show with 5 or 6 of their big blockbuster hit songs. In all 7 musicians onstage, maybe more. Zak Starkey on Drums, Simon Townsend on Second guitar, and others. They had multiple video screens going in the back, mostly live shots of Pete/Roger. But they very tastefully used old concert video footage of John Entwistle and Keith Moon to the point where you felt that both of those band members were sometimes actually part of the live show. Yes, Roger and Pete are obviously aging rock stars with a little less athleticism and sometimes strained vocals, but I have to admit, they still have "it" and they put on a great show.. What they may lack in youthful exuberance, they more than make up for in professionalism and spirit. Turned out to be a good old fashioned ass kicking Rock and Roll show with all of the bells and whistles!!!

thanks. it's cool he has continued in that role.
Well, he's Pete's bassist for his solo work, so it makes sense he's still there.
He's no Ox though.
