When I went out for the evening on September 28th, it was with a sense of celebration and relief! I should of been going out with my Mum, but she's not ready for such a big outing yet. It took some asking around, but I found someone to come along, my friend Amy from work. It was a little tough to find someone who knew Tommy and liked it. Mum and I had gotten tickets ages ago to see Roger Daltrey of the Who perform the rock opera Tommy from start to finish and some of the Who's greatest hits.
Ottawa is a strange city, for some reason only 2,500 tickets were sold in a venue that holds over 10,000! Go figure, Ottawa you suck sometimes.
I must say Roger Daltrey did not disappoint! He and his band put on an amazing show! As he performed Tommy he didn't stop, not a pause between songs. It was like listening to the CD. Once they finished performing Tommy they just kept going, it felt like it had just been a warm up!
It was a great, raw, rocking show and it definitely made up for the disappointing show that Pearl Jam put on a few weeks before!
I did mention I LOVE concert t-shirts!
