The Who Bring Quadrophenia To Europe This Summer
UPDATE: New York City Benefit Concert
The Who have added a special night as the last stop on their American tour, set to kick off tomorrow night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. Scheduled to take place February 28 in New York City at the more intimate Theater at Madison Square Garden, the concert will be a benefit to support Teen Cancer America and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
The show will be a bit different than the rest of the shows on the tour as the band will perform a greatest hits show in lieu of the Quadrophenia rock opera they are reviving for their tour in the U.S. and the United Kingdom later on in the year.
Tickets for the show go on sale Saturday, February 2. For the best deals on all tickets to The Who, keep it locked right here at SeatGeek.
The Who Quadrophenia Tour
The Who are continuing their tour of bringing Quadrophenia to the masses with a new string of tour dates in the United Kingdom this coming June and July after they wrap up a string of more North American tour dates in January and February.
According to Pollstar, “For this tour, the band is eschewing the narration employed for previous presentations of Quadrophenia, choosing instead to go with images denoting particular plot points in the story.”
