The Who has announced a huge Moving On! show at Wembley Stadium, London on 06 July 2019 with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder as a special guest plus Kaiser Chiefs and more still to be announced!
Singer Roger Daltrey along with guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend will unleash the explosive musical force that is The Who, with symphonic accompaniment this summer at London’s Wembley Stadium.
On stage the line-up will be rounded out by familiar Who players including guitarist and backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey.
The iconic band have also confirmed that they will be releasing their first album of new songs in thirteen years in 2019!
Commenting on what fans can expect, 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?”
Roger Daltrey continued, “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.”
Since they first emerged in the mid-1960s with their distinct rock n’ roll sound, the legendary foursome has performed all over the world at global music events as well as charity concerts. In 2012 Daltrey and Townshend launched Teen Cancer America, which is now an established charity in the US. The Who frontman has also been the driving force behind Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert Hall concerts since they first began in 2000 and is also an honorary patron for the charity.
