Last night (December 9th) the Who wrapped the 21-date 2012 leg of their ongoing Quadrophenia And More tour at Uncasville, Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Arena. Apart from their set at Wednesday night’s 12-12-12: A Concert For Sandy Relief at New York’s Madison Square Garden, the Who will be on hiatus until January 28th when the band launches its 2013 leg at Anaheim, California’s Honda Center.

Roger Daltrey always thought that Quadrophenia perfectly captured the ups and downs of adolescence — along with showcasing the combined personality of the Who: “A band that makes music has chemistry. So if you kind of fuse those characters together and you take what we’re like through that period of adolescence, y’know, we’re trying to find out who we really are. So we are kind of different characters within ourselves. We kind of thought, well, this is interesting, you can take the four members of the band — there’s four sides of a person, and that person is ‘The Who,’ and that’s the music.”

Pete Townshend told us that after years of relating to his music as an extension of himself, he’s finally come to understand what the music has meant to his audience: “What I can do now with good grace is accept that it was a good idea and that it was carried out brilliantly by the people involved in it, and also responded to in a magnificent way by the people that got it. There are a whole number of people that have responded to the idea and have extrapolated something from it into their own world.”
