The Who Symphonic Tour - Vancouver
The Who have announced dates for their Moving On! tour. A local orchestra will join the band every night of the tour for an evening of music from their entire career.
“Be aware, Who fans!” Roger Daltrey said in a statement. “Just because it’s The Who with an orchestra, in no way will it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music. This will be full throttle Who with horns and bells on.”
Pete Townshend and Daltrey will be backed by the same band they’ve used in recent years, which includes guitarist Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey. The set list is still being worked out, but the band has indicated they want to play a selection of songs from Tommy to honor its 50th anniversary along with tunes from Quadrophenia and other select hits from their large back catalog.
They aren’t billing it as a farewell tour, but Daltrey recently told Rolling Stone this could indeed be his last one. “I’m just being realistic about going through the 75th year of my life,” he said. “I have to be realistic that this is the age I am and voices start to go after a while. I don’t want to be not as good as I was two years ago.”
