We're going. Should be fun!! Quadrophenia is my favourite Who album.

Yeah, I don't think this show is selling well at all. I've been keeping an eye on ticket availability and just last week I was able to pull 2 first row tickets on the floor. I'm guessing those were part of the super ridiculous VIP packages that no one bought.

The opening act is a band called Vintage Trouble which I'd never heard of. I saw that the singer's name is Ty Taylor and that rang a bell... ha, ha, it's the same Ty Taylor that was a contestant on the reality show "Rockstar: INXS". I guess he's not doing too bad for himself.

Ironically, their first tour without the Ox sold well. Toronto sold out and so did many other dates. It makes no sense other than Pete was back playing mostly electric guitar after abandoning it for over a decade. The reviews for the Rog & Pete Quadrophenia tour so far have been positive, with Rog's voice holding up for the duration, which is surprising.
