The Who; Join Together with the Orchestra!

 

The Who started their Moving On!tour last night (Tuesday) at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Backed by an orchestra, they did 23 songs, opening with eight from Tommy, which was released 50 years ago this month. Then, minus the orchestra, the band did four songs on their own -- "The Kids are Alright," an acoustic version of "Won't Get Fooled Again," "Behind Blue Eyes" and, from their last album, 2006's Endless Wire, "Tea & Theatre."

The orchestra then returned to back the band on six songs from their second rock opera,Quadrophenia, before closing out the show with "Baba O'Riley."

The big surprise was the live debut of "Imagine a Man" off of 1975's The Who by Numbers.

Up next is an ourtdoor show in Bristow, Virginia on Saturday.

The first leg of the Moving On!tour goes until June 1st in Toronto.
