Good for you.

I did not hear much audience participation.

The lead singer was planted at the same spot.

The visual did not connect with the people in the stand.
Now that is not the band's fault... but still

Re: SuperBowl Half-Time Show, Lackluster Performance

Who cares about the half-time?

The commercials are blowing major chunks.

I thought The Who--or what's left of it--were pretty good but definitely showing their age.

Of course, they're hardly the only ones...

Re: SuperBowl Half-Time Show, Lackluster Performance

half time show is when you get wasted even more.

No. It was hardly audible, and the crowd could not be seen.

Another poster said s/he only like the lights. Why, because there was no people to be seen.
The people were in the dark, not other acts on stages.

I think superbowl is as much about visual as audio.

Roger Daltrey could not move despite the big stage.
The stransition between songs was not smooth.

This is a band which has a long reputation of outstanding live performances, but I am afraid age has caugth up with them.

well he is pretty old.

i say give the man a break. it was still a good performence. not epic or mind boggling, but still good. i mean shit would you rather have ke$ha up there raping our ears with her live singing?

The music was fantastic, it still endures. Singing was awful, but the guy is old.

The music at the Superbowl to me, is how it was sung, not how we remember it
Everybody knows the Who have an impressive repertoire of songs made popular by the live performance of the band.

And they did not come thru today. Hence my disappointment
