There was hardly an empty seat at the Colosseum last night at Caesar’s Windsor as generations of music lovers gathered to watch Roger Daltrey perform The Who’s rock opera “Tommy”.

Paul Freeman started off the night as the opening act fifteen minutes ahead of the advertised 9:00 pm starting time.  By 9:15 pm, Freeman had left the stage for some last-minute show set up, and by 9:30 pm  the fans were cheering and the house rocking.

Daltrey and his accompanying musicians performed all of The Who’s “Tommy” non-stop from start to finish.  Much to the crowd’s pleasure, the musicians remained on stage after completing the opera to play another small set of The Who songs, including “Who Are You,”  “Teenage Wasteland,” and “Behind Blue Eyes.”
