The Who's Roger Daltrey in a Mission Beach hotel room, June 13, 1970. The band's Sports Arena show was their fifth on this U.S. tour; in about a month's time, they'd done 24 and were back in the U.K. An article that announced their S.D. concert noted that they traveled in a "custom-built truck complete with a television, stereo, and sleeping quarters." And, "...the Who plan to incorporate color videotape with the live stage performance to overcome problems of...visual obscurity."
