Rock legends The Who have announced that they will be returning to the road this spring with the launch of their North American The Who Hits Back Tour.
The tour will include spring and fall legs and will kick off on April 22nd at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL and will be concluding with two shows at the Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas, NV on November 4th and 5th.
Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend will be joined on the tour by guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, second keyboardist Emily Marshall, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey and backing vocals by Billy Nicholls along with orchestra conductor Keith Levenson, lead violinist Katie Jacoby and lead cellist Audrey Snyder.
Daltrey had this to say, "Pete and I said we'd be back, but we didn't think we'd have to wait for two years for the privilege. This is making the chance to perform feel even more special this time around.
"So many livelihoods have been impacted due to Covid, so we are thrilled to get everyone back together - the band, the crew and the fans. We're gearing up for a great show that hits back in the only way The Who know how. By giving it everything we got."
