Labor Day Concert, Monday, September 7: Tribute to The Who
The Who Show
The Who Show has been thrilling audiences with the unmistakable live sounds of The Who for more than a decade. Voted VH1’s “Most Believable 1970’s Era Who Tribute,” The Who Show was also hailed by the Los Angeles Times to be “in a class by themselves.” With note-for-note musical renditions, authentic costumes and vintage instruments, The Who Show accurately captures the “individual stage personas, idiosyncrasies and showmanship” (Music Connection Magazine) of one of the most influential bands and perhaps the greatest live band ever. While many tribute bands duplicate the appearance and sound, The Who Show “takes the extra step to capture the magic, energy and essence of The Who.” (San Diego Union-Tribune) The Who’s unforgettable repertoire includes such favorites as “Baba O’Riley,” “My Generation,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “I Can’t Explain,” “I Can See for Miles,” “Love, Reign O’er Me,” “Who Are You,” and “Pinball Wizard.” www.thewhoshow.com
