The legendary guys of the Who have announced two North American tour legs for 2019

It’s official: The Who are hitting the road in a major way in 2019. The legendary rock band just announced not one but two North American tour legs, the first kicking off May 7 at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“The Who are touring again in 2019,” Pete Townshend said in a statement. “Roger christened this tour ‘Moving On!’ 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. This will be full throttle Who with horns and bells on,” added Roger Daltrey.

The first tour leg wraps up on June 1 in Tononto, Canada. Then, the second leg of the Who’s tour sets off Sept. 6 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, and runs through an Oct. 23 show in Edmonton. Find the full roster of tour dates below.
