Hailed as an undisputed masterwork of The Who’s career, WHO’S NEXT changed the world of rock after it was released in 1971 as their 5th studio album. As Pete Townshend raised the bar for songwriting and The Who set a new standard for performance, this triple-platinum album reached no.1 on the UK’s top ten chart and no.4 on the US Billboard chart. Even today, 50 years later, WHO’S NEXT is still considered a landmark of the rock canon with songs like "Baba O’Riley” and "Won’t Get Fooled Again" that continue to resonate with listeners as if they were written just yesterday. Don’t worry if your favorite Who songs don’t land on this album! This 50th anniversary concert also celebrates their greatest hits; so you can expect to hear some of The Who’s other masterpieces such as “You Better You Bet”, “Pinball Wizard”, and “Long Live Rock” just to name a few.
