The Who began their career as most bands do; by touring as much as possible. The 1960s saw the group’s name start as The Detours then to The Who followed by High Numbers and finally as The Who again. The
Who built their reputation on their live shows long before having any chart success.
Notable shows from this decade are the 1964 Marquee show, which is one of the earliest live recordings of
the band; the April 1968 Fillmore East show which has been booted many, many times on both LP and CD;
and the many 1969 live recordings of Tommy which include the oft bootlegged Amsterdam and Woodstock
