by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

The Who have opened day three of the historic Desert Trip concerts in the California desert, featuring six iconic acts over three nights.

Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones played on Friday night, Neil Young and Paul McCartney on Saturday and Sunday night was The Who and Roger Waters.

The Who played a 22 song set with no surprises but a whole lot of classic hits. The centrepiece of the show was a cluster of rock operas with Quadrophenia then Tommy receiving showcase treatment.
