The Who Announce 'Quadrophenia and More' Tour

Who Quadrophenia

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have announced The Who’s first North American tour in four years. This trek (titled “Quadrophenia and More”) will center around a full-length performance of Quadrophenia, the band’s 1973 rock opera, but will also feature other Who hits, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

“We’ve been trying to find something we can do together, Roger and I, for a while,” Townshend said. “Quadrophenia was something that we both felt we could get together on and look again. The last time we did it [on tour] was in 1997. We’ve been anxious to work together before we drop dead.”

Townshend went on to admit how much he and Daltrey miss the other founding members of The Who – late bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. But, he said he’s looking forward to playing the classic opus with the group’s current touring lineup, which includes Zak Starkey on drums, Pino Palladino on bass and Pete’s brother Simon Townshend on guitar.
