The Who, who we thought had retired the last time they retired
(the tenth time, right?), are un-retiring again to take their oldies show on
The group, filled-out by son-of-Ringo, Zak Starkey, on drums
(they got the idea from a "Saturday Night Live" skit, right?) will begin their
latest jaunt with a three-week European tour in May.
jaunt will be followed by a 20-date U.S. tour that kicks off on July 19 in St.
Louis, covering mainly midwestern and East Coast venues, including many of the
cities deprived of the full Quadrophenia experience of last year's tour.
The cleverly-titled jaunt, "The Who Live In Concert," features core Who
members Pete Townshend, singer Roger Daltry and bassist John Entwistle doing a
full performance of the Quadrophenia rock opera, plus a set where the
band "reach deeply into their peerless catalog of hits, covering every phase of
their storied thirty-year career," according to a press release. Wonder if
they'll play "Won't Get Fooled Again"?
