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 fifth studio album. As Pete Townshend raised the bar for songwriting and The Who set a new standard for performance, this triple-platinum album reached Number 1 on the UK’s Top Ten chart and Number 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.

 

“Who’s Next is to The Who what the White Album must’ve been to The Beatles.”

—Dave Marsh, Creem, October 1971

 

“...intelligently-conceived, superbly-performed, brilliantly-produced, and sometimes even exciting rock and roll.”

—John Mendelsohn, Rolling Stone, September 1971

 

“Who’s Next has just about everything a classic rock fan can want in an album.”

—ClassicRockReview.com, February 2011

 

“...stands as the Who's best album, a filler-free explosion of guitar-powered riffs, generation-sparking lyrics and larynx-shredding anthems.”

—Michael Gallucci, UltimateClassicRock.com, August 2016
