The Who

Pete Townsend played a guitar on stage with a clamp at one end, seemingly holding it together; he claimed their equipment van had been broken into or stolen.

Patrick Smith – “One night when the Who played there, it was particularly memorable. Condensation was dripping off the walls as the crowd got into a sweat because they were so good. Keith Moon was drumming away – he even came off the drums and began tapping his way across the floor, up the walls, against the fire extinguishers, never missing a beat. Around the stage were some stuffed animals in glass cases and when he started on those, he smashed two or three, much to Mick Parker’s annoyance.”

No record can be found of the exact set lists at these gigs, however a typical one in 1965 contained a selection of the following songs:

  • Tell Me Baby
  • Heatwave
  • Motoring
  • Shout And Shimmy
  • I’m A Man
  • Smokestack Lightning
  • Spoonful
  • Green Onions
  • Land of 1000 Dances
  • Daddy Rolling Stone
  • Jump Back
  • I Can’t Explain
  • Dancing In The Street
  • Bald Headed Woman
  • Baby Don’t You Do It
  • Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere
  • Please, Please, Please
  • Love Hurts
  • I Don’t Mind
  • Just You and Me, Darling
  • A Man With Money
  • My Generation
