The Who continued to rock their way across the US this weekend with a powerful performance on July 22 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, at Boardwalk Hall. The multi-platinum sellers pumped out a 23-song setlist of greatest hits and beloved album tracks, including their 1972 single “Join Together” along with a few surprises.
A setlist and show update posted on July 23 at the official Facebook page of The Who reveal that the legendary British rockers dedicated their classic 1965 rock anthem “My Generation” to the late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, who tragically passed away on July 22. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers also added a twist to the song by segueing directly into their 1974 Odds and Sods track “Naked Eye,” which the “Pinball Wizard” hitmakers have not performed live since Dec. 11, 2014 in Liverpool, United Kingdom, at Echo Arena.
Fans pumped to catch The Who at an upcoming date can check out the action in Atlantic City, courtesy of a fan-shot video of the band performing “Join Together,” posted July 22 at YouTube. The 4:53 minute clip opens with Who touring keyboardist Loren Gold performing the instantly recognizable jaw harp intro.
As psychedelic images flash across the huge LED screen, touring drummer Zak Starkey's cannon shot drum rolls bring the rest of the band on board the anthem rocker. Frontman Roger Daltrey's pipes remain powerful as ever as sings, “Everybody join together/Won't you join together/Come on and join together with the band.”
Fans can check out the Atlantic City setlist posted below. The footage of “Join Together” is posted above.
The Who 2017 Tour will continue on July 25 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, at Van Andel Arena. The band will then begin their first-ever Sin City residency, which will run between July 29 – Aug. 11 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with the US leg wrapping up Aug. 16 in Stateline, Nevada, at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena At Harveys.
