    This show is a simple but important one in the Who’s history. The album “Tommy” not only salvaged the Who’s career. It made them millionaires and superstars.

    It provided the band with a live project that reinvigorated the band and gave singer Roger Daltrey an identity that stuck for the rest of his life. They may have created better work, but none can compare to the influence and impact of “Tommy”.
