The Who tour and album

by Modculture 5 February, 2006

Townshend And then there were two. But it doesn’t seem to be any kind of block of carrying on as The Who either in the studio or on the road.

According to Pete Townshend, writing on his website www.petetownshend.co.uk, what’s left of the group will be hitting the road this year for an extensive worldwide tour.

"There will be a tour," he said. "We already have European festival dates slotted in June and July."

After the festival dates, The Who will then start an extensive North American tour which will run from September and December. This will be folowed by shows covering the rest of the world.

Townshend also revealed that a new album from The Who would appear in the near future.

He said: "There will be a new CD sometime in the early summer. I know I’ve cried wolf a few times, but this time I have committed because I have about enough music for a new CD, and I’m still producing."

I saw them on their last UK tour and they were actually very good. But down to two members and still carrying on? Personally I’m not convinced.

    Meh. Pete still writes some good stuff. Roger’s voice isn’t complete crap. I’d like to see them. I won’t, but I’d like to.

    I still have nightmares about the one and only time I saw them live, in ’89 on the tour now referred to as “the Who on Ice”
    Shattered a lot of illusions, that gig; and I would humbly suggest to any one who wants to remember the Who as they were, and who’s never seen them live, to stay away

    Vana,
    You saw them at a low ebb, now they have more energy than I have seen them have since john died.
    They electruified the isle of white festival, the times headline was “the sheer genius of the Who” If you saw the live 8 show, then you will have seen some power guitar work from a dynamic pete.
    They will nblow your socks off now I kid you not. An incredible powehouse show with the nbrilian Zak Starkey on drums ( ringos son, and kieth mon taught him to play) and the incredible pino palladino on bass, and simon townshend ( petes Brother) on other guitar. the amaizingly stalwart and versatile John “rabbit Bundrick” on keyboards,
    I can hoinestly say seeing the who now is like being beaten up for two and a half hours.
    go on vana, give the lads the benefit of the doubt you had in 89, remember that was the tinme of “its hard” and kenny jones on drums and the who’s plateau years.
    they are up there now!!

    I saw the who both in 96 at hyde park and at live 8 whilst live 8 was a let down (mainly due to time allowed) Hyde Park was spectacular and I will certainly be first in line for the tour tickets this time round
