The Who have announced they will mark their fiftieth anniversary with a UK arena tour in winter 2014.
The tour, The Who Hits 50, kicks off at the end of November and continues until mid-December with dates in Glasgow, Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham, Newcastle, Liverpool, Manchester, Cardiff and London. The Who hits 50 UK tour could be their last.
The Who said to the BBC that, “This is the beginning of the long goodbye. We are what we are, and extremely good at it, but we're lucky to be alive and still touring.”
The tour will celebrate the band’s entire career and is expected to take the audience on a journey of their 50 years together. Some of the greatest The Who hits include their 1965 track My Generation, Who Are you? and Quadrophenia.
