The Who Announces Madison Square Garden Date; 1071 The Boss Has Your Tickets
It’s official! The Who announced a North American tour this morning, with a date set for May 13 at Madison Square Garden.
Dubbed the “Moving On! Tour,” the trek will feature classic songs with ” symphonic accompaniment.” The tour will kick off May 7 in Grand Rapids, MI with the band wrapping up the first leg of the tour on June 1 in Toronto, ON. It is the band’s first tour since it wrapped its 2017 Las Vegas residency.
Who founders Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend also announced the group will release their first album of new songs in thirteen years later this year.
“Roger christened this tour Moving On! I love it. It is what both of us want to do,” Townshend said. “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?”
Adds 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.”
On stage, the line-up will be rounded out by familiar Who players featuring guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey, and complemented by some of the best orchestras in the US and Canada.
The Who’s fan club pre-sale starts Wednesday, January 16 at 10am local time and runs through Thursday, January 17 at 10pm local time. Every pair of tickets purchased online includes a redeemable code for a CD copy of The Who’s forthcoming album when it’s released.
