Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, surviving founders of The Who, have revealed the initial dates for the group’s first world tour in over 20 years, which gets underway with a round of North American shows this fall, reports liveDaily.
So far, the rock legends have inked 15 September and October tour dates that kick off in Philadelphia Sept. 12 and focus on the northeastern US and Canada. A lone November show in Los Angeles and a lone December show in Toronto have also been confirmed.
Members of the band’s official tour club will have early access to tickets via an online presale that began July 13th and runs until Saturday July 15th, as well as access to special VIP ticket packages. More information is posted at the tour’s official website.
In addition to announcing their tour plans, Townshend and Daltrey have also nailed down an Oct. 23 release date for a new album tentatively titled “Who 2,” which is The Who’s first new studio collection since 1982’s “It’s Hard.”
“For the first time in 25 years we are returning to the USA with great live music — the entire catalogue of our old stuff — and new music,” Townshend said in a press release. “We have a great new video show, a new Mini-Opera and plans to do some special shows with special themes. Our European shows are warming us up, and we will be in great form when we start the tour in September,” said Pete Townshend. “I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to a tour as much as this one. Roger and I are both fit and well, ready to rock.”
“Pete and I are really excited to be returning to the US with some brand new music to play,” Daltrey added. “We’ll also be digging out some rarities that we’ve not played for a long time. We’re looking forward to reconnecting with our American fans and hopefully seeing some new ones coming along too.”
