Last year, The Who announced that, in honor of their 50th anniversary, they’ll be hitting the road for their final world tour. They released a set of UK tour dates a few months ago, and now the North American tour dates have been revealed—it will be split up into two legs, one spanning April and May and the other in September and October. They’ll play shows in Tampa, FL; Miami, FL; Austin, TX; Houston, TX; Nashville, TN; Chicago, IL; Columbus, OH; Philadelphia, PA; Uniondale, NY; Anaheim, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; Calgary, AB; Milwaukee, WI; New York, NY; Boston, MA; Washington, DC; and many, many, more. For more information on ticketing for this 50th anniversary farewell, visit the band’s website.
Formed in 1964, The Who’s best-known lineup consists of lead singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend, late bassist John Entwhistle, and late drummer Keith Moon. Along with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, they are regarded as one of the most important British rock acts in history. After wildly successful releases like 1969’s Tommy and 1971’s Who’s Next, the band broke up in the early 1980s. Reunions happened at Bob Geldof’s Live Aid and a 1989 tour, among others, and the band got back together in 1996 for a revival of Quadrophenia.
