The Who’s Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend will return to the road for “The Who Hits Back!” tour.
The 30-date North American tour takes place over two legs. Following a spring leg, The Who return to the road in October and November. Update – August 26th: The Who have added new dates in San Jose (10/24) and Phoenix (10/30).
As they were on their previously “Moving On! Tour,” The Who will be joined on stage at each show by a local orchestra under the direction of conductor Keith Levenson, and featuring lead violinist Katie Jacoby and lead cellist Audrey Snyder. Rounding out The Who’s live band are guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, second keyboardist Emily Marshall, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey, and vocalist Billy Nicholls.
Mike Campbell and The Dirty Knobs will open the majority of the fall tour dates.
