After several 2020 tour dates were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Who have announced a brand new 2022 tour that will take them to Boston this spring.
Lead singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend will perform at TD Garden on Wednesday May 18th as part of the band The Who Hits Back! tour announced by the band on Monday morning. The eight-month North American tour begins April 22 in Florida and concludes in Las Vegas in early November.
“Pete and I said we would come back, but we didn’t think we would have to wait two years for that privilege,” Daltrey said in a press release announcing the tour. “It makes the chance to perform feel even more special this time. So many livelihoods have been impacted by COVID so we are so excited to bring 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 can. By giving everything we have.”
The Who are no strangers to Boston, having last performed in the city in 2019 at Fenway Park and 2016 at TD Garden.
Joining founding members Daltrey and Townshend, The Who will be touring with his full live band consisting of guitarist/backup vocalist Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, second keyboardist Emily Marshall, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey and backing vocals by Billy Nicholls, along with orchestra conductor Keith Levenson, principal violinist Katie Jacoby and principal cellist Audrey Snyder. According to a press release, The Who plan to play a set featuring many of their classics and pull out their latest album WHO.
Public ticket sales begin Friday, February 11 at 10 a.m. on LiveNation.com. Before that, presale for American Express Card Members begins Monday at 10:00 am and presale for the Who Fan Club begins Wednesday 9 February at 10:00 am
