The Who Announce UK, Europe Arena Tour

The Who have announced a 12-date arena tour of the UK and Europe.

Ultimate Guitar

The band will perform their iconic 1973 double album "Quadrophenia" in its entirety, along with a selection of Who classics.

This new concert version of "Quadrophenia", personally directed by Roger Daltrey, focuses on the original album and replaces the narrative used in previous stage versions with powerful imagery projected on an array of massive screens, designed to support, complement and propel the musical content of the work by setting it in the context of the history of the band.

According to HenneMusic, The Who's 12-date tour in the UK (including Belfast) and in Dublin, Paris and Amsterdam features founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, who will be joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), John Corey (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals).
