The Who 1980-07-13 Greensboro Coliseum Greensboro, NC

The Who
Greensboro Civic Center
Greensboro, NC
1980- July 13



This appears to be a classic concert from KylieMinogue.

Let the Greensboro Daily News on July 14, 1980 explain the show:

"Greensboro's latest "event" was Sunday, in case you missed it.
'Course, if you were within 20 miles or so of the coliseum, you couldn't have missed it - or hearing it, at least.

The Who's music was so loud, in fact, that it was nearly impossible to understand the words unless you'd heard them before, which most of the concertgoers probably had.

Coliseum officials added a touch of security, and police officers and door guards kept things from getting out of hand.
But jagged nerves weren't hard to find, and haven't been ever since 11 fans were killed in a stampede at The Who's concert last fall in Cincinnati.

And the famous Who sound must have affected a few people, given that they have to be the loudest group going.
The music absolutely vibrated the building - no wonder the group's members have suffered hearing loss over years.

A variety of lights, some looking like spaceships, illuminated the performance, which featured all the fans have come to expect from these 15-year veterans of rock 'n' roll.
Lead singer Roger Daltrey twisted, grimaced and jumped; guitarist Peter Townshend gave it his almost-violent best; bassist John Entwistle stood off In his customary calmness; new drummer Kenny Jones slammed out the beat."
