ST PAUL, Minn. — The parade of rock legends hitting the road continues with word that The Who is coming to St. Paul and the Xcel Energy Center September 6.
Original members Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey will launch the 'Moving On' tour in conjunction with the release of their first album of new material in 13 years. The first leg of the tour, where the band will play with symphonic accompaniment, launches May 7. The Who's fall leg kicks off in St. Paul.
Tickets to the show go on sale to the general public on Friday, Jan. 18 at LiveNation.com. Members of The Who Fan Club get early access beginning Wednesday, Jan. 16 at 10 a.m. Every pair of tickets sold online comes with a redeemable code for the new album when it is complete.
"The Who are touring again in 2019. Roger christened this tour Moving On!," Townsend explained in a released statement. "I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose. Looking forward to seeing you all. Are you ready?"
"Be aware Who fans! Just because it's The Who with an orchestra, in no way will it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music," Daltrey added. "This will be full throttle Who with horns and bells on."
This is The Who's first return to the U.S. since their Las Vegas residency in 2017.
