The Who, for the first time, played their entire “Tommy” album in concert for the first time.. they played for 3 hours..
Joe Cocker and the Grease Band finished the show. By the time they took the stage, almost everyone had left and we could just lean on the stage.. none of us had ever heard of them and the lead singer was a bit spastic…
