One of the original British Invasion bands of the 60’s, legendary rockers The Who has announced plans for a 36-date North American tour, set to begin in November.  The band will play Quadrophenia in its entirety, along with some other Who staples, as the tour coincides with the 40th Anniversary of the release of the epic 1973 double album. ‘We’ve been anxious to work together before we drop dead,’ says Pete Townshend.

Joining Roger Daltry and Pete Townshend on stage will be drummer Zak Starkey (yes, son of Beatle Ringo Starr), Simon Townshend on guitar/backing vocals (younger brother of Pete), Pino Palladino (bass), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals), Chris Stainton (keys), and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals).

The tour will see The Who make three stops in NY, at the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Madison Square Garden in NYC, and Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale.

Tickets will be available to members of the official The Who fan club from 10am on July 20th until 10pm on July 22nd.  You can go here fanclub to sign up for membership.

American Express presale will be available from July 23rd-26th, with the general on sale set to begin on July 27th at 10am.
The Who will also be releasing a special edition Quadrophenia DVD on August 28th.  To find out more information on that, check here
