" The WHO To Set Up Residency In Las Vegas "





" British Rock Legends The WHO have been saying “farewell” since the early 1990s ... and they are about to say “hello” to a lengthy residency in Las Vegas! That's a good thing, considering this past summer's tour by the venerable rockers was a blockbuster critical and financial success!

PETE TOWNSHEND and ROGER DALTREY never sounded better, and their energetic and career-spanning performances sold out almost everywhere they played. The Who also performed all of their legendary rock opera Tommy (a rarity!) for a UK charity benefit this past spring and recently released the DVD of the show, again to much critical acclaim!

With all of this happening, and the fact that Townshend and Daltrey are really enjoying themselves, the two original members and the rest of the band are planning an extended stay in Las Vegas now that another British rock legend, Elton John, is closing out his long run of shows in Sin City.

This last Who tour will probably be the last large-scale jaunt for the two original band members, who are now both in their 70s, and while they are opting out of playing large venues in numerous cities, they are apparently very keen on the idea of setting up for a more lengthy run of performances in one place. That place just happens to be the Colosseum Theater at Caesars Palace, where The Who played a string of shows earlier this year. According to an article in the UK tabloid The Daily Mirror, promoters in Vegas are eager to have another high profile act step in now that Elton John is wrapping up his residency there.

Apparently all that needs to be worked out is the length of the residency and The Who's compensation. While Elton John racked up a total of 450 shows over 13 years, The Who are planning on a much more modest duration of two years, and it's speculated that the payday for The Who could be close to $46 million. Rock on, Pete & Roger!  "

Includes limited edition 12 x 12 art print

The Who were in New York to conclude a gruelling tour on April 4th, 1968, the day that Dr Martin Luther King was assassinated. America was already a country divided; Anti-Vietnam demonstrations, civil rights disturbances and militant student activism. With this turmoil as a backdrop on Friday and Saturday, April 5th & 6th, 1968 The Who performed two incendiary live sets at Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore East on the lower East Side of Manhattan.

The venue had only just re-opened in March by Graham from its previous incarnation as the Village Theatre where the band had played on a couple of occasions the year before. The Who was the first British rock act to headline the Fillmore East and were booked to play four shows over the two nights. However, because of feared social unrest in the wake of Dr King’s assassination, it was decided to compact the shows into one per night.

The Who’s time in New York City in 1968 can best be described as ‘lively’. Keith Moon’s antics with cherry bomb explosives had meant that the band had to move hotels. When installed in the at the plush Waldorf Astoria he then somehow managed to a blow a door off its hinges and, the band had to move once more.

On the morning of the Fillmore rehearsal, the band were photographed for Life magazine and legend has it that the band were so tired from Moon’s antics that they nodded out under the large Union Jack draped over them at the base of the Carl Schurz Monument in Morningside Park. This iconic image was later used as the cover and poster for The Who’s classic film ‘The Kids Are Alright’.

Both nights were recorded by Who manager Kit Lambert with the intention of releasing the results as the Who’s fourth album after The Who Sell Out and before Tommy. Disaster struck when it was discovered that due to faulty equipment or human error only part of the first night was captured. Thankfully the second night was recorded and has now been fully restored and mixed by long time Who sound engineer Bob Pridden (who was responsible the band’s sound on those nights in 1968) from the original four-track tapes. For the 50th anniversary of these legendary shows, the unreleased recordings are to be issued on triple vinyl lp.

Thanks to an acetate reaching the bootleg market in the early ‘70s, the Who’s reputation as rock’s most dynamic live act quickly grew. The show is regarded by fans as something of the ‘holy grail’ of Who live shows equalling the legendary ‘Live At Leeds’ album. The tapes have been meticulously remastered for optimum sound quality and will only serve to enhance The Who’s reputation as the best live act of the time.

The 3LP set include three Eddie Cochran numbers; My Way, Summertime Blues and the never before released Who version of C’mon Everybody.

Also featured is a rare cover version of Fortune Teller written by Allen Toussaint, originally recorded by Benny Spellman but made famous by The Rolling Stones. These shows also showcased Tattoo and Relax from The Who Sell Out as well as stunning extended versions of A Quick One and My Generation which becomes a 30-minute jam with a the climax of guitar-smashing and drum demolishment!

Deluxe 3 x LP heavyweight vinyl, gatefold sleeve, three printed inner bags & new liner notes and rare photos.

The Who in 2019: New Album, Tour

by Best Classic Bands Staff


The Who will tour the U.S. in 2019, with “plans to do some stuff in the U.K.” The band will also record an album this year. The announcement came from their longtime manager, Bill Curbishley, who shared the news today (Jan. 10) in an interview with BBC Radio.


2019 should be a Happy Who Year

Appearing with host Shaun Keaveny, Curbishley said: “We’re gonna do an album… Pete [Townshend]’s written some really great songs. He gave us some demos a couple of months ago and I really think of those—he gave me 12 of them—eight of them are absolutely great for The Who. And he’s still writing and he’s got so much stuff, so I’m sure he’ll adapt some of that and we’ll get some more songs.”

The Who haven’t released a new studio album since 2006’s Endless Wire. (Before that, you’d have to go all the way back to 1982’s It’s Hard.)

As for 2019 performances, Curbishley said “We’ve got some really good dates we’re gonna do,” specifically mention the U.S. and U.K., adding: “That’s gonna be announced over the next couple of weeks.”

The Who haven’t toured since 2017.

Townshend and Roger Daltrey spent 2018 working on individual projects. Daltrey released a solo album, As Long as I Have You, and performed a series of U.S. and U.K. dates. He also published his memoir Thanks a Lot, Mr. Kibblewhite.

Townshend spent 2018 away from The Who to devote time to his wife Rachel Fuller’s stage musical production, The Seeker.

In other Who-related news, Curbishley revealed some significant progress on a long-discussed film on the life of Who drummer Keith Moon. “We’ve talked to Roger about that for 20 years but we’re finally there,” he told BBC Radio. “He’s had a couple of scripts over the years that didn’t really suit, but since I got involved with him we went through a couple of different scriptwriters and we’ve settled on a writer called Jeff Pope.”

The BBC’s Keaveny asked him: “Have you started casting for Moonie yet?” “That’s a tough one but I’ve fixed on it really being an unknown and finding another Phil Daniels.” Daniels played the lead role in the 1979 film adaptation of Quadrophenia.

THE WHO ANNOUNCE 2019 NORTH AMERICAN MOVING ON! TOUR
29 DATES SET FOR SUMMER AND AUTUMN LIVE TREKS

ICONIC BAND ALSO SET TO RELEASE THEIR FIRST ALBUM OF NEW SONGS IN THIRTEEN YEARS

The band will share the stage with orchestras at marquee venues including Fenway Park, Madison Square Garden and Hollywood Bowl


For Who fans everywhere, the announcement of a brand new 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, with symphonic accompaniment this summer and fall 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 go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, January 18 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 US and Canada.

The Who’s fan club pre-sale starts Wednesday, January 16 at 10am local time and runs through Thursday, January 17 at 10pm local time. Every pair of tickets purchased online includes a redeemable code for a CD copy of The Who’s forthcoming album when it’s released. This offer is available to US and Canada customers only and not valid for tickets purchased via re-sale. In addition, $1 from each ticket sold for the MOVING ON! TOUR will benefit Teen Cancer America.

To join The Who Fan Club and get the opportunity to get some pre-sale tickets, just click on FAN CLUB at the top right of this page.

The tour is their first return to the states since their 2017 Las Vegas residency.  That same year they did a limited run of shows following 2016’s rescheduled leg of their acclaimed 50th anniversary celebration.  The band also drew praise for their extended 2012-2013 North American run, a 36 city Quadrophenia tour with the band performing their 1973 rock opera in its entirety.

Commenting on what Who fans can expect on the 2019 MOVING ON! tour, Pete Townshend stated: “The Who are touring again in 2019.  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?”

Commented Roger Daltrey: “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.”

The Who are one of the top three greatest rock legacies in music history.  Their music provoked explosive change and spanned what many critics declare is rock’s most elastic creative spectrum, with Pete Townshend’s songwriting moving between raw, prosaic, conceptual, and expressively literate.  Their visionary sense of stagecraft headed by Roger Daltrey’s soaring vocal prowess is topped off by the band’s blistering rhythm section.  With both Roger and Pete delivering their own memoirs in recent years (Pete’s Who I Am was released to much acclaim in 2012, and Roger’s autobiography, Thanks A Lot Mr Kibblewhite; My Story, was embraced by critics in 2018) it’s fitting that the two remaining Who members have shared their incredible legacy in literary fashion, for few bands have had a more lasting impact on the rock era and the reverberating pop culture than The Who.

Emerging in the mid-1960s as a new and incendiary force in rock n’ roll, their brash style and poignant storytelling garnered them one of music’s most passionate followings, with the legendary foursome blazing a searing new template for rock, punk, and everything after. Inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990, the band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, placing 27 top-forty singles in the United States and United Kingdom and earning 17 Top Ten albums, including the 1969 groundbreaking rock opera Tommy, 1971’s pummelling Live At Leeds, 1973’s Quadrophenia and 1978’s Who Are You.  The Who debuted in 1964 with a trio of anthems ‘I Can’t Explain’, ‘The Kids Are Alright’ and ‘My Generation’. Since then they have delivered to the world hits such as ‘Baba O’Riley’, ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘Who Are You’, and ‘You Better You Bet’.

In 2008, they became the first rock band ever to be awarded the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. The Who has performed all over the world including global music events for the Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show in 2010 and closing the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The Who continued their charity work by playing a concert in January 2011 to raise money for trials of a new cancer treatment called PDT. In December 2012 they performed at the Hurricane Sandy Benefit in New York. In January 2014 they played a set on the US television special to support the charity Stand Up To Cancer. In November 2012 Daltrey, with Townshend at his side, launched Teen Cancer America. The charity is now established in the USA, with offices in Los Angeles and devoted Teen Cancer units being opened in hospitals all over the US TCA’s work has impacted over 5,000 young people and their families nationwide during the last six years.
