Who’s Last? The Who Announce Their “final” farewell tour

I saw a report on Paste.com today that the Who will be doing one more “last tour” in 2015. It would be their 50th anniversary tour, which is quite an achievement. Although I can’t help but to think of all of their other farewell tours. The Who’s own song title “Won’t Get Fooled Again” could serve as a nice punchline here.

Back in 1984, they released Who’s Last. It was recorded in 1982 at the old Richfield Coliseum, near by hometown of Cleveland and was billed as the band’s last concert in the USA. (you can actually hear the 2 hour-plus show on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQgYvBNtYTk).
