With THE WHO tour launching on May 7, an acclaimed lineup of artists has been announced for the slate of coveted special guest spots on the eagerly-anticipated trek! The rollout of diverse support acts includes some of the most impassioned artists in music, bringing a rousing repertoire of rock, country and bluegrass to audiences on the first leg of the tour.

For WHO fans everywhere, the upcoming tour means only one thing: the world’s most untameable rock band is about to deliver the goods once again. Never ones for nostalgia, singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend will be unleashing the combustible force that is The Who and pairing with acclaimed local symphony orchestras each night. The opportunity to see the iconic band accompanied by some of America’s most renowned orchestras includes both summer and fall dates in 2019. Produced by Live Nation, The Who’s North American MOVING ON! TOUR will bring their indelible brand of powerhouse rock to 29 cities beginning in May (see tour itinerary below.)

The kickoff date is May 7 in Grand Rapids, MI with the band wrapping up the first leg of the tour on June 1 in Toronto, ON. A much-anticipated series of fall dates will launch on September 6 in St. Paul, MN and conclude on October 23 in Edmonton, AB. Tickets are on sale at LiveNation.com.

The Who will also be releasing their first album of new songs in thirteen years later this year. On stage, the line-up will be rounded out by familiar Who players featuring guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey, and complemented by some of the best orchestras in the U.S. and Canada.
