The set also features the Who’s first new track in eight years — the Pete Townshend-written, “Be Lucky.” The tune features Who live sidemen, drummer Zak Starkey and bassist Pino Palladino — along with keyboards by Style Council co-founder Mick Talbot. As fans of the Who can attest to, the phrase “Be Lucky” has been a big part of the Who live experience, marking Roger Daltrey’s exiting words at every show in recent years.
