Quick Thoughts by Gregory Swindasz
Did you see that stage at the Super Bowl? It was amazing; the whole thing was a display screen. And those fire works! The half-time show looked so great, truly stunning. But who was on that great amazing stage?
Oh that’s right The Who; who dat?
Dat who, The Who.
In all seriousness, legendary band The Who took the Super Bowl half-time stage this year, and while the stage itself has never looked better, the performance was a little lacking. And there’s much to say about this stage. Once occupied with the infamous “wardrobe malfunction” of Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake. Or how about the Rolling Stones or Paul McCartney. Yes, the Super Bowl half-time stage has hosted some amazing legends in its time.
It’s truly a shame that today all I can remember or think about is the stage. The Who’s performance was not up to par. They sounded tired and winded at times. I did like that they went through their best songs including “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” It really wasn’t an amazing performance. At least it was an amazing stage.
