The Who begin the second leg of their Moving On! tour this evening at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Having first played there for four nights in June 1974, Pete Townshend tells the New York Post that he does "love" playing the "World's Most Famous Arena."
"I just love it, and I’m not sure why. I sense a welcome always from the people that work there and from the audiences. Our very first complete Quadrophenia shows there in 1996 were like a bawdy Shakespearean play at the original Globe. It had a narrator [and] there were people shouting, interrupting, throwing things, screaming for 'Magic Bus' and 'Boris the Spider.' But even so it seemed to work."
He says New York "feels like home." The Who played their first American show there in March 1967.
This leg of the tour runs through October 24th at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
