A crowd of 15,500 fans witnessed The Who venting their spleen against the Canadian police! Introducing 'My Wife', Pete Townshend mentioned that the band had spent all day in prison and that he had come to the conclusion that John Entwistle is a "rotten dirty criminal, and I don't like him!" An amazing level of energy was reached on 'The Real Me' and was maintained with 'Punk And The Godfather', although there was a brief pause between the two for Pete to retune his guitar. Talking of the Montreal police, he said "fuck their fucking arseholes" and added that he wished they were up on stage after seven hours in a police cell. However, prior to 'Drowned', Pete said - perhaps sarcastically - "I feel fucking incredible!" Townshend played an unaccompanied solo during 'Drowned' for a short while before the band picked up the song again. Daltrey later said: "About ten hours ago this gig was absolutely fucking impossible. So this one's for the filth - or whatever you like to call 'em - the police in Montreal. We're 'ere and it's good to be 'ere and this is for them: 'Won't Get Fooled Again'!"
