poster advertises The Who playing two nights at the Roundhouse, Chalk
Farm, in North London, in November 1968. Both gigs were 'all nighters',

Joe Cocker, Yes, The Mindbenders and Arthur Brown.
copy of a very rare poster advertising The Who, when they were still
known as The Detours playing a regular Friday night gig at Club Druane,
Notre Dame Church Hall, Leicester Place in London in 1963. Playing that
same night were The Federals and The Bel-Airs and the admission price
was 4/6, about 23 pence!! This venue still exists and can be found just
off Leicester Square.
1971, The who played a charity concert in aid of the Bangladesh Relief
Fund, at the Oval Cricket Ground in Kennington, South London. Over 31,000
people watched The Who, along with The Faces, Lindisfarne, Quintessence,
Mott The Hoople, Cochise, the Greaseband, America, Atomic Rooster, and
Eugene Wallace. During 'Magic Bus', Keith Moon played the drums using
a valuable cricket bat belonging to the club, then threw it into the
crowd at the end of the performance!!
great poster advertising The Who playing their last ever gig at the
Goldhawk Social Club, in Shepherds Bush, West London on Friday, 3rd

for six months, having played regularly on Friday nights for more than
2 years, building up a huge mod following.
