Remembering The Who’s “First” Last Play

The old song lyric “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” certainly rings true for the surviving members of The Who, who tried to do that 35 years ago.

Pete, Roger, John and Kenney kicked off their only formally announced “farewell” US tour in Washington, DC this month back in 1982, wrapping things up a few months later in December with two nights in Canada.

They made their way to Shea Stadium for two nights in between there, too.

What are your memories of The Who’s “first” last play?
