The Who Will Tour in the U.S. This Year, Manager Confirms

It looks like The Who is going to tour in 2019 after all.

The band is preparing to record a new album, and is gearing up for dates in the United States as well as the U.K., the band’s manager confirmed today (Jan. 10) in a BBC interview.

“We’re gonna do an album… Pete [Townshend]’s written some really great songs,” said longtime manager, Bill Curbishley. “He gave us some demos a couple of months ago and I really think of those—he gave me 12 of them—eight of them are absolutely great for The Who. And he’s still writing and he’s got so much stuff, so I’m sure he’ll adapt some of that and we’ll get some more songs.”
