NEILL, Andy and KENT, Matt Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere: The Complete Chronicle Of The Who, 1958-1978, London: Virgin, 2002
This poster documents the last show of a somewhat disastrous tour of Australia and New Zealand. Bad press regarding foreign entertainers milking the Australian economy, exaggerated reports of an incident involving the bands on an internal flight, and inadequate sound systems all conspired against The Who and The Small Faces. At the end of the tour the Australian Premier denounced the groups as ..a mob of crummy hooligans, and Pete Townshend publicly vowed never to return. He kept his word until this year when the band returned for the first time.
