Townshend later said, "We know that the stage act we had, with Tommy in it, would work under any circumstances, because Sparks - The Who - Tommy (CD had worked many times on tour.
Tommy remained in the Who's live set through the rest of the year and into In Octoberthe Who played six shows at the Fillmore Eastwhere Leonard Bernstein praised them for their new music.
Townshend said "This is the very last time we'll play Tommy on stage", to which Keith Moon promptly cried, Sparks - The Who - Tommy (CD, "Thank Christ for that! Public reaction to the Who's concerts that included Tommy was overwhelmingly positive. The touring helped keep the album in the public eye, and cleared the band's debts.

Rather than trying to portray him I wanted to picture his experience of being in a world without conventional senses. I thought it would be limitless and unbounded yet trapped in an environment made for people who have all their senses The cover uses the form of the globe to represent both the Earth and Self floating in an endless infinite black universe like space.
