As usual, Phil and the boys did not disappoint with this completely ad-libbed jam of a show! Doing most of the first self-titled LP and throwing in other gems such as "Never is a long time", "Do Lord" and a surprising rendition of Blind Faiths "Presence Of The Lord" they played for close to 3 hours. Excellent musicianship throughout and a most enjoyable evening for the most part. That was until we attempted to leave and discovered our car (as well as those of many others) had been towed from a parking lot down and across the street from the venue by a local towing contractor, a particularly insipid group of viral slugs d. b. a. terris towing in Kent,Ohio. While the cars were parked in an area that very much resembles the municipal lots that surround the "stage", apparently there was a small sign posted on the auto parts store building warning of this fate. I would advise anyone attending a show to be very careful where they park and for the locals...Please do not patronize the parts store! The folks at Kent Stage were quite helpful,though, with one of the volunteer workers, Gary, offering us a ride to the malodorous towing company. Final cost? just under a hundred bucks to park. Be careful!

Ya gotta love Triv. He grew up a lot like myself. Him in Lyndhurst, me in the streets of Cleveland's South Collinwood. He loves the town and tells it as he sees it. What more can you ask for?
Paper airplanes? Dangerous projectiles!!
I attended this show with my wife. I have seen Daltrey many times over the years and can attest to his awesome vocal prowess. The man is in his 60's now and was obviously suffering from a cold/flu.Cut him some slack. The first 3 quarters of the show were great and the opener, "Who Are You?" was enough to send shivers down your spine. The band was tight and sounded great, especially the drummer, who was far above average. Simon Townshend also did a great job on lead vocals on "Gettin' In Tune", sounded like his big brother Pete. Rock on Roger.
I was at the Tuesday night show where they did The Royal Scam in its entirety. While the band was tight and it was an overall enjoyable evening, I found Donald Fagen's voice to be not what it once was. Becker took far too few leads, leaving 95% of the guitar work to the "young turk". While Jon Herington was good, to coin a phrase, "he ain't Skunk Baxter".As a geezer attending geezer shows, I thank my lucky stars that I've seen most of these acts in their prime and truthfully enjoy going to see the newer acts that ARE in their prime. Just a minor musing about an overall good show. Ray Sabetto Sr.
