The Who are currently in the middle of their 2019 Moving On Tour, which continues with a show at Fenway Park in Boston, MA on Friday. Ahead of their weekend show at the Boston baseball stadium, the band will reportedly deliver an intimate performance to help open the Pace Gallery’s new New York City headquarters on Thursday.
According to reports, the band will perform at the office opening for the well-known contemporary art gallery, in addition to potentially using the relatively small gathering to reveal the cover art for their forthcoming studio album, which will be their first since 2006’s Endless Wire. The Roots’ drummer Questlove is also scheduled to DJ the event.
ARTnews also reports that the cover art on the band’s new album, which has yet to be titled, was designed by Peter Blake, whose past work includes the very well-known cover of The Beatles‘ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
The Who debuted some new music recently during their headlining performance at NYC’s Madison Square Garden earlier this month. It was during the MSG performance where guitarist Pete Townshend informed fans that the album was likely due out this November.
The Who will return to the New York City area early next week when they perform at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY on September 15th. Head to the band’s website for tickets and tour info.
