The Who Announce ‘Quadrophenia’ Tour

none | Boulder Weekly

The Who
are heading back on the road after a four-year break and bringing
their 1973 rock opera “Quadrophenia” with them. Surviving original
members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey
announced the tour — a 36-date romp through North America —  in a
web press conference on Wednesday. They’ll be playing the classic
album in its entirety.

Daltrey described
performing with his longtime bandmate as like being in a “war
zone… something happens on stage,” he said. “Pete drives me. It’s
rarely dull.”

The tour begins a first leg on
Nov. 1 in Sunrise, Fla. and runs for six weeks before breaking for
the holidays. The trip will resume on Jan. 28 in Anaheim, Calif. and
wrap up in Providence, R.I. on Feb. 26.
