Commenting on the tour Pete Townshend stated:
“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. The Who will also be releasing their first album of new songs in thirteen years later this year. Their first original material since 2006’s ‘Endless Wire.’ Townshend has stated that fans can expect ‘dark ballads, heavy rock stuff, experimental electronica, samples stuff and Who-ish tunes that began with a guitar that goes yanga-dang.’
For early access to tickets, pre-order the new album now to access a pre-sale starting from Wednesday 30 January at 10.00am.
