Review by Andy Jackson

Last night The Who, in the sweltering heat, torn into a set that kept the energy so high that they nearly blew the roof off in Le Zenith, Paris with a superb performance that showed that these guys aren't gonna slow down that easy.

Blasting into opener Who Are You, then into The Seeker, The Kids Are Alright, I Can See For Miles, Pictures Of Lily, My Generation. The Who gave classic after classic keeping the crowd happy. Behind Blue Eyes was sublime, then Bargain was played, this was my 8th time seeing the Who & I finally got to hear it & it was an astonishing rendition. You Better You Bet got me & Sam singing along together. I'm One sounded superb, an emotional & passionate Love Reign O'er Me was next, Eminence Front showed Pete at his best with him ending the song with the line 'dressed yourself to kill, you fucking idiotic cunts!' The Tommy section was next, Roger forgot the lyrics to the opening verse of Amazing Journey & laughed it off, the song still sounded great. Sparks was played with immense power & drive. Pinball Wizard & See Me Feel Me got the crowd into a complete frenzy, you now could feel the build up for the final two songs, Baba O'Riley & Won't Get Fooled Again.

Absolutely speechless about this performance. A shorter set to the one I saw in Leeds in December last year. No A Quick One or Can't Explain tonight, a few more songs could have been played in their absence but that's just a minor complaint. The band are much tighter & more relaxed on stage & Pete didn't have his iPad taped to his mic stand either which for me was a blessing. This show was very satisfying for me & possibly the best I've seen them since 2004. All in all a fantastic night that's left me on a high again.
