This January Marks 50 Years Of Britain’s Best Band

Or, you could sit them down with a beer and their 50-year-old original singles, and make your job a damn sight easier. Back in 1965, The Who released their first song, the single ‘I Can’t Explain’.

Apparently the British get a male voice in their phones, and I haven’t found how to change Mr. Phelps to a man’s voice. And I won’t call it “Miss Phelps” because that would take away from the whole ambience: I’m going for that voice on the old reel-to-reel tapes that Peter Graves (the real Mr. Phelps) would pick up in odd places at the beginning of every “Mission: Impossible” TV episode. You just don’t get the same effect with “Good Morning, Ms.

Movie still from "STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS."

You won’t regret it. The Who Maybe it’s fitting that The Who will kick off the North American leg of their 50th anniversary tour on Tax Day, April 15. With VIP packages for this gig at Amalie Arena topping out at more than $800, you might have to fudge a few numbers on next year’s forms in order to afford a ticket. Only singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend remain from the iconic British rockers’ classic lineup, but they’ve promised a show filled with hits from their entire half-century-spanning catalog My Generation and Who Are You, Pinball Wizard and Baba O’Riley, I Can’t Explain and Won’t Get Fooled Again. This could be The Who’s final go-around no, for real, we’re serious this time, you guys and if you want one last spin on the Magic Bus, you’d better pony up. Score nosebleed seats for $36.25 and up at amaliearena.com. Taylor Swift OKAY, TAYLOR, YOU WIN. You can have your youth and looks and incredible wardrobe and cool best friends and perfect Manhattan apartment and all of the Grammys, and we will STILL give up our Halloween night on a Saturday, no less! in order to catch your concert at Raymond James Stadium.
