The Who: Music Hall, Boston

Nancy Lewis, New Musical Express, 21 August 1971

THE WHO, in America after a year's absence, are creating a bigger sensation than ever. Statistics don't lie. They completely sold out two New York Forest Hills tennis arena concerts, a total of 28,000 seats, the fourth act to do it in recent history — Simon and Garfunkel in '70; Frank Sinatra in '65; Beatles in '64.

Total word count of piece: 382
