The band fronted by singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/singer Pete Townshend will then pick things up again in the fall for another 13-show run, kicking off at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Oct. 2 and running through a Nov. 4-5 stand at Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas.

Two years after the rock icons performed with local orchestras on the Moving On! tour, they will once again share the stage with classical ensembles in the U.S. and Canada on the upcoming dates. Tickets for the Live Nation-promoted tour will go on sale to the public beginning on Friday (Feb. 11) at 10 a.m. local time here.

“Pete and I said we’d be back, but we didn’t think we’d have to wait for two years for the privilege,” Daltrey said in a statement. “This is making the chance to perform feel even more special this time around. So many livelihoods have been impacted due to Covid, so we are thrilled to get everyone back together – the band, the crew and the fans.  We’re gearing up for a great show that hits back in the only way The Who know how. By giving it everything we got.”

Daltrey and Townshend will be joined by guitarist/back-up singer Simon Townshend, keyboardists Loren Gold and Emily Marshall, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey, backing vocalist Billy Nicholls, orchestra conductor Keith Levenson, lead violinist Katie Jacoby and lead cellist Audrey Snyder.
