The Who continued their 2019 Moving On North America Tour — featuring the band backed by a full orchestra — on Friday night at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. A highlight of the non-orchestral section of the show was the tour debut of “You Better You Bet,” the hit song from the legendary rockers’ 1981 album, Face Dances.

The Music City show saw founding members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey performing classics like “Pinball Wizard,” “Sparks,” “Who Are You, ”Eminence Front,” “Drowned, “Baba O’Riley” and more with the orchestra. The show’s middle section without the orchestra included “You Better Bet,” as well as favorites including “Substitute” and the rock anthem “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”

The call-and-response ready “You Better You Bet,” saw Daltrey getting the Nashville audience going alongside backing vocals from Townshend with a cherry red Stratocaster slung on. Check out audience-shot video of the tour debut below captured by Nashville Cigar Box Guitars:
