Fiona Friday – The Who

Who Put The Boot In Poster

It was 33 years ago today that I first saw The Who live at the “Who Put The Boot In” all day concert at Celtic Park.

Sounds May 1976

I was lucky that Fiona grew to love The Who as well though up until I met her the only album she had was “Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy” from which “The Seeker” was her favourite song and despite a real love for both “Who’s Next” and “Quadrophenia” that track remained forever her favourite Who song.

Fiona and I saw The Who live four times, twice in December 2000 at the Glasgow SECC

John Entwistle's Art The Who 2000

and then during a special weekend in London in March 2004 at a small venue where they were playing an intimate warm up show for a World Tour,

and finally at Liverpool in the big tent in July 2006.

…….we were there!

Fiona and I also saw both nights of Pete Townshend’s performance of “Lifehouse” at the Sadler’s Wells
