One of the Big 4 original British Invasion groups whose back catalog has withstood the test of time, the Who return for perhaps the last time to give die-hard fans a stadium-sized wallop. They’ll be rooting on singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Pete Townshend, whose best songs—“Instant Party,” “My Generation,” “Can’t Explain,” “The Ox” (written with John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Nicky Hopkins), “Run Run Run,” “Baba O’Riley,” “Eminence Front,” etc.—swagger with more bravado than most from their peak era (mid ’60s–early ’70s) and country (England). For sheer sonic power and lyrical prowess, the Who are hard to beat. Opener Liam Gallagher boasted one of the brattiest, Lennon/Rotten-est voices in rock with world-class plagiarists Oasis and in Beady Eye. In his solo career, however, Gallagher has released two albums of accessible journeyman rock. The most entertaining thing about Liam these days is his chronic feud with older brother Noel.
