The Who will continue their Moving On! Tour in 2020 with an additional eight dates in the U.S. The tour consists of Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend with local symphony orchestras as they cross the country.
Along with a series of rescheduled shows announced earlier in the month, the band has expanded their 2020 itinerary to include a show on April 21 in Hollywood, Flor. at the Hard Rock Live, April 23 outside Cincinnati, Ohio at BB&T Arena at Northern Kentucky University and a series of six shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas kicking off on May 5 and running to May 16.
The Who’s April 23 show in Cincinnati will have added historical significance as it will be the first time the band will be performing in the city since eleven lives were tragically lost as the concert crowd waited to get into The Who’s concert on Dec. 3, 1979. The historic show was announced last night by local Cincinnati TV station WCPO after airing a documentary special commemorating the 40th anniversary of the tragedy – The Who: The Night That Changed Rock.
Daltrey and Townsend were both interviewed for the special program along with long-time manager Bill Curbishley. The Who will make a donation from the concert to the P.E.M. Memorial, the organization that was founded to honor friends and classmates that lost their lives at the 1979 concert, providing college scholarships for students at Finneytown High School.
The upcoming shows will feature The Who’s full live band comprised of guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend (Pete’s brother), keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey (Ringo’s son) and backing vocals by Billy Nicholls along with orchestra conductor Keith Levenson, lead violinist Katie Jacoby and lead cellist Audrey Snyder. The tour will also feature performances from their first full-length album in 13 years, WHO, available everywhere this Friday (Dec. 6).
The Moving On! Tour will donate $1 from each ticket sold to Teen Cancer America. Check out a full list of dates below.
