The world’s most untameable rock band is delivering the goods once again. Never ones for nostalgia, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend will be unleashing the combustible force that is The Who with syphmonic accompaniment by some of the best orchestras in North America. The Who MOVING ON! TOUR will bring their indelible brand of powerhouse rock to Edmonton on October 23rd!
Inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990, the band has sold more than 100 million records, placing 27 top-forty singles and 17 Top Ten albums, including the 1969 groundbreaking rock opera “Tommy”. The Who debuted in 1964 with a trio of hits including “My Generation” followed by “Baba O’Riley,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “Pinball Wizard,” Who Are You,” and,” You Better You Bet.”In 2008, they were the first rock band to be awarded the Kennedy Center Honors and have performed at the Super Bowl XLIV in 2010 and the London 2012 Summer Olympics.
Pete Townshend states: ““The Who are touring again in 2019. Roger christened this tour Moving On! I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose. Looking forward to seeing you all. Are you ready?”
Commented Roger Daltrey: “Be aware Who fans! Just because it’s The Who with an orchestra, in no way will it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music. This will be full throttle Who with horns and bells on.”
