Daltrey reigns o’er Niagara Falls
From the Niagara Falls Review:
As any longtime Who fan will tell you, the best concerts were always the ones that felt like they could fall apart at any second. A blown amp. A destroyed drum kit. At their peak, The Who brought a volcanic energy to the stage that made every show unruly and unpredictable.
So it was amusing — and a bit old school — when an angry Roger Daltrey abruptly halted the show at Fallsview Casino Monday night. He had been battling his ear piece all night, and it finally boiled over during the crescendo of Baba O’Riley. Not content to muff the ending, he barked orders to someone off stage while the band stood frozen.
“We’ll start it again!,” he yelled, and his anger fueled an even better Baba as the crowd roared in approval.
