Who's Coming? Oh yeah, The Who

Take a look in your wallet. If you can count out anywhere from $52 to $202 stuck in there, you can see The Who at The Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport tomorrow. If you'd rather wait till Friday, the legendary duo comes to the Mohegan Sun Arena for the tidy sum of $87-$202 a seat.

But if this sounds interesting, you better act quick. Though nothing officially sells out at Mohegan until the day of the show, tickets are no longer available online and will have to be purchased at the venue's box office. For tomorrow's show in Bridgeport, some seats remain, but they're going fast.

I'm not really sure what to think of this show. I saw The Who about five years ago and really enjoyed it. The band was much better than I expected, much better than the typical classic-rock band touring to line its pockets. On the other hand, this jaunt is promoting a new record, one that would be good if I could cut it in half. Because I can't, "Endless Wire" is a frustratingly long disc, one that has far too much filler overshadowing eight to 10 good tracks.

All that said, I'll be at the show reviewing. So if you see me on the way out, let me know what you think. Otherwise, get moving to buy those tickets. StubHub's lowest ticket currently tops $130. Get going and good luck.

Are they calling this the "Who's Left?" tour?

Speaking as a Dad with a floundering music career: $52.00 ought to include at least a hot dog an a soda. Othewise, I just really can't justify the cost.

or if they included the beer you'd need to get through the 10-minute drum solo ...
