The Who confirmed today (Jan. 14) the North American portion of what they’re calling their “Moving On” tour. The band will share the stage with orchestras at what the announcement describes as “marquee venues,” including the Hollywood Bowl, Boston’s Fenway Park and New York’s Madison Square Garden.

The North American dates cover 29 cities and are split between dates this spring, running from May 7 to June 1, and a return that occurs from September 6 to October 23. See the full itinerary below.

The Who will also be releasing their first album of new songs in thirteen years later this year. On stage, the line-up will be rounded out by familiar Who players featuring guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey, and complemented by what the announcement describes as “some of the best orchestras in the U.S. and Canada.”

The Who’s fan club presale starts Wednesday, January 16 at 10 a.m. local time and runs through Thursday, January 17 at 10 p.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 18.

Every pair of tickets purchased online 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 resale. In addition, $1 from each ticket sold for the MOVING ON! TOUR will benefit Teen Cancer America.

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster and here.

Pete Townshend stated: ““The Who are touring again in 2019. Roger christened this tour Moving On! I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose. Looking forward to seeing you all. Are you ready?”

Commented Roger Daltrey: “Be aware Who fans! Just because it’s The Who with an orchestra, in no way will it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music. This will be full throttle Who with horns and bells on.”
