If they're still the Who is personal, I'd say yes. Seen them in the 70s and a couple of times is the past 5 years. Although missing the lead base and insane drumming, still it's Townsend and Daltrey, the main force behind the Who.

Gona go again this summer.......

Sadly, I was too young to see them pre-break up in 1982 (although I vaguely remember begging my family to see their farewell show at 10yo). But then I saw their reunion tour in 1989, which I heard Pete/Roger refer to as "Who On Ice" (b/c it was such an elaborate production and less of a rock concert) which was good... but nowhere near as good as the shows I've seen since then.

I saw them perform in the 90s, 2000s, and this decade as a threesome, and once since we lost The Ox in 2002. I would have LOVED to have seen Keith Moon, but Zak Starkey is a formidable drummer and a great fit (I also saw him perform live with Oasis), and the rest of the touring band (inc. the bass player and Pete's brother on backing guitar) really fit nicely into the mix and in line with what we see with other bands that have backing musicians. We can't bring Moon and Entwistle back, but Pete and Rog are still bringing great performances to the stage.

Good to hear they are still bringing a good show.

I only saw them once, in 1971 in Seattle for their Who's Next tour. Will never forget that night.

I heard their upcoming record will be called "Who's Left?".

The upcoming Boston show is at Fenway Park (ballpark), so no way I even thought of attending that.
Last Who show I went to was the Quadrophenia anniversary tour. Paid to join the fanclub for premium seat option, sat about 15 rows back, and it was SO worth it! One of my favorite albums, and the video/movie clips they had form the old days playing on the big screens added to the show. After that one, I could safely say, I don't need to see them again as it won't get any better.

Boom! I got tickets and am going to finally see a band I've wanted to see for the last half century. They're not at Red Rocks, but you can't get everything you want, right?
If you are going to the Jackson Hole area , two suggestions , check out the Center for the Arts events schedule . And If you are there for a Monday, do come and even sign up play the JH Hootenanny (open mic ) every Monday at 6:00 PM @ Dornan's in Moose ( about 12 miles N. of JH) come early about 5:00 as the slots fill up quickly

I saw the Quadrophenia show as well. I agree with you, it was incredible! Epic. I believe Billy Idol joined them for that one. Much more than just a concert.

FYI, Fenway Park is a great place to see a concert. Iíve seen a few there. Great vibe.
