The Who continues to add 2016 dates to The Who Hits 50! Tour. The legendary British rockers have announced a one-off show to take place Feb. 13 at London’s SSE Arena, Wembley.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers unveiled the news via an update posted Nov. 9 at the official website of The Who. The show will mark their first live performance since the multi-platinum sellers were forced to postpone the second North American leg of the their 50th anniversary tour after singer Roger Daltrey was diagnosed with viral Meningitis in September, and also the “Pinball Wizard” hitmakers’ first show on their home soil since their final 2015 U.K. tour stops at London’s historic Hyde Park and Glastonbury in June.
Pre-sales will begin Thus., Nov. 12 at 9:00 a.m. GMT. Tickets go on sale to the public at Fri., Nov. 20 at 9:00 a.m. GMT and are available at AXS.
“Who’d have thought that fifty years on from first playing at Wembley Arena with the Beatles and many of the top groups of that time, The Who would once again play at this legendary venue,” wrote Daltrey in a statement. “It’s great to be feeling much better after my illness. I’ll be fighting fit by then and I can’t wait to get back to work.”
The Who recently announced the upcoming release of their concert documentary “The Who: Live at Hyde Park.” The film received a limited run in theaters last month and will be available in a variety of standard and deluxe editions in DVD, Blu-ray, DVD+2CD set, DVD+3LP set on Nov. 20 via Eagle Rock/Universal.
The Who will re-launch the second leg of their AEG Live produced The Who Hits 50! Tour of North America on Feb. 27, 2016 at Detroit at Joe Louis Arena and wrap up May 29, 2016 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum At Caesars Palace. Tickets available at AXS.
