In answer to today's Plinky prompt, the best live musical performance I've ever attended was on 12th June 1976 when The Who performed at the unglamorous venue of Swansea Football Stadium in Wales.
Highlights were Baba O'Riley, and the primal scream of Roger Daltrey for the finale of Won't Get Fooled Again.
I went with three friends and by some fluke we somehow managed to get a place right near the front to see the full glory.
A stunning show from start to finish - as usual, they didn't play an encore but none was necessary.
I drove back to the Midlands after and nearly fell asleep at the wheel. Stopped for a coffee and greasy cooked breakfast at a motorway service station to stay awake. Got home at about 5am - a long day's journey into night but well worth it.
