The Who announce Vancouver stop on epic North American tour

The Who have announced that they are hitting the road on an epic 29 city tour across North America.

The Brit rockers kick off their Moving On tour in Grand Rapids, Mich. May 7 during the summer leg of the tour. From there, they will make their way to Toronto on June 1, and then begin the fall leg of the tour in St. Paul, Minn. on Sept. 7.

Vancouver will be the second to last stop on the fall leg of the tour, as the band makes their way to Rogers Arena Oct. 21.

The legendary foursome blazed onto the music scene in the ’60s, but singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend are the only remaining members and will play with symphonic accompaniment this year.

What’s more, the band is set to release its first album of new songs in 13 years.

The Who’s fan club pre-sale starts Wednesday, Jan. 16. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Jan. 18.

Every pair of tickets purchased online also includes a redeemable code for a CD copy of The Who’s forthcoming album (when it’s released). This offer is available to U.S. and Canada customers only and not valid for tickets purchased via re-sale.

In addition, $1 from each ticket sold will benefit Teen Cancer America.

Inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990, the band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, placing 27 top-40 singles in the U.S. and United Kingdom and earning 17 Top Ten albums, including the 1969 rock opera Tommy, 1971’s Live At Leeds, 1973’s Quadrophenia and 1978’s Who Are You.
