    The Who to tour after nearly 25 years?


    I don't think so. they toured in 2002 when Entwhistle died, just before the first gig. They also did a huge tour in 1989 and another in between, IIRC.

    Twenty-five years?!?! What the fuck?

    You're right: There have been at least three tours since 1989.

    Guess they think we won't get fooled again.

    Give it fucking up already. God, they've become embarrassing.

    You know the people who were too young to know about them the last couple times they toured? Now, THEY'RE even old.

    The line "hope I die before I get old" seems especially ironic with half the guys dead and the other half apparently determined to tour until they drop dead.

    Maybe this is the first FINAL tour since 1982.

    There's an old saying in Tennessee ... I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee ... that says "Fool me once... shame on ... shame on you ...(long pause) ... You fool me, CAN'T GET FOOLED AGAIN!"

    No, what's embarassing is that my dad pulled me out of the FOURTH GRADE to go see the Rolling Stones on the Steel Wheels tour. He was convinced it had to be their last go-round.

    18 years later, and I can buy a ticket and see them whenever I want. Apparently, there are people left on Earth who haven't seen the Rolling Stones but want to. They must be the same people I see at the Super Wal Mart on Saturday.

    I'm a huge Who fan but I think this is a bit much even for me. I saw them on that Kids Are Alright tour in 1989 and saw them some years after that when they toured doing the Quadrophenia album so I don't know where they get this first tour in 25 years shit (that first farewell tour wrapped up at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto - couldn't get tickets for that).

    These bands, notably the Stones and the Who, just need to hang it up.

    Add Aerosmith to the list of bands who should have their license to rock taken away...but as long as dumb-ass baby boomers will pay $100+ a ticket to watch these guys go through the motions with a bunch of pickup musicians, they'll continue to tour. Who cares if these bands are destroying their legacy and haven't been remotely relevant since Reagan was in the White House? There's money to be made!

    Normally I'd agree with you, but I'm actually hoping to see Aerosmith with Motley Crue this fall, if only for the hope Aerosmith will play only the good stuff and not the teeny bopper post-Pump shit.

    Why should I care...why should I care?

    They haven't done a whole original album since "It's Hard" in '82 (Christ!). Even though they've done a bunch of, um...smaller tours since then, guess this is the biggest one since this one:
