Who at Union Catholic High School

The Who Tour of 1967 began in March, it was their first trip to North America. The first concert was part of a Murray the K Rock and Roll Festival at the Fox Theatre in Brooklyn, New York. The highlights of this tour were their six-song set at the Monterey Pop Festival and an appearance on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

As this was their first North American tour, before they gained enormous fame at Woodstock, they played a lot of smaller venues such as this High School in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.

The Scotch Plains show sold out with a crowd announced at 2,200 people. Tickets were sold for a $2.50 “donation”.

After an opening set by a local band, The Decoys, the Who played early well known songs such as “The Kids Are Alright” and “My Generation” and then went into new songs from their forthcoming album “The Who Sell Out“.
