The Who continued their first-ever Sin City residency with the second gig of a six-night stand on Aug. 1 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers dazzled fans with a hit-packed 21-song setlist that contained a few tweaks from their opening show along with must-plays like their 1971 Who's Next classic “Won't Get Fooled Again.”
A concert update posted Aug. 3 on The Who's official Facebook page reveals that the legendary British rockers dusted off their 1969 single “Pictures of Lily” for the first time this year. The “Pinball Wizard” hitmakers also reinstated their 1973 single “5:15” in place of the Quadrophenia live rarity “The Punk And The Godfather,” which was performed for only the second time since 2013 on opening night.
Fans can get a taste of the night's action via fan-shot footage of the night's closing number. Following some extended cheeky banter with the audience, Who guitarist Pete Townshend gets down to business with the explosive power chord that sets up the synth intro to “Won't Get Fooled Again.” See below for the complete setlist for The Who's Aug. 1 show in Las Vegas. The video footage from “Won't Get Fooled Again” is posted above.
The multi-platinum sellers recently announced the upcoming release of a new singles collection. The 5-CD box set Maximum As & Bs will hit shelves on Oct. 27 via MCA and is available for preorder here in CD and digital formats.
The Who's residency will continue on Aug. 4 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace through Aug. 9. Tickets for all shows are available at AXS.
Following their stint in Vegas, The Who will take a headline Outside Lands Festival on Aug. 13 in San Francisco. Their U.S. summer tour will wrap up Aug. 16 in Stateline, Nevada at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena At Harveys and will be followed by a U.S. fall run of Pete Townshend's Classic Quadrophenia, which kicks off Sept. 2 in Lenox, Massachusetts at Tanglewood and wraps up Sept.16 in Los Angeles at The Greek Theater.
