Awesome band taking yet another plunge and being rewarded for being a great band...not just another jam band. Kudos to moe. for earning another great opening slot.

I, for one, am VERY surprised by this! I mean, I am sure moe. will make some new, older fans and that they will be able to fill up a big room with their sound, but damn, this has been a long time coming, for sure! Have they ever played a room as big as some of these stadiums? I wonder if there will be any collaborations (Spine of a Dog)?!?

This is awsome. If lived anywhere near these shows and had hundreds to spend, I would be there in a second. I think that moe. is probably the best jamband to play in an arena rock setting. Unlike Phish where the intricate notes faded out in that big of a room. moe. will use the room for everything it's worth! I nead a t-shirt that says "The who with moe." It's meant to be.

jets19- id like to see a group with Joe Russo or the mighty STINKING LIZAVETA from philly open for the who!

at least there will be one band worth seeing at these 4 dates - don't get on me for not liking the who, i actually love them - but seriuosly how many reunion/farewell tours can one band do before it gets old(especially at $75+ per ticket) - they are not kiss & should not act like it - end it w/ some dignity please roger & pete!

"nowhere near as wierd as peeping tom opening on the east coast dates" - I just saw Peeping Tom open up for Gnarls Barkley in Central Park. I think they would be better off just playing Faith No More covers because THEY SUCKED BIG TIME.

I wish moe was opening in Philly, if they were I would actually go to the show and spend a lot of money

JETS19 - I WOULD EXPECT SOME BONNEROOVIAN HOAX ALT/INDIE/POP-ROCK ACT WITH HUGE INDUSTRY CONNECTIONS TO GET A BIG GIG LIKE THIS, NOT AN HONEST, HARD WORKING JAMBAND LIKE MOE. THATS THE BEAUTY OF THIS, DONT YOU THINK?

pesonaly, although I grew up on large helpings of the who and appreciate them as one of the heaviest hitting bands in rock history deserving MUCH respect I think they should open for moe. seeing as how they are the baddest band in the land.
