The Who Add to 2020 Tour

The Who have announced more 2020 dates for their acclaimed Moving On! tour, which pairs Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend with local symphony orchestras across North America. Along with a series of rescheduled shows, the band has expanded their 2020 itinerary to include a show in the Cincinnati, OH area – the first time the band will be performing in the city since 11 lives were tragically lost as a crowd waited to get into The Who’s concert on December 3, 1979.  The schedule also includes six shows at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV.

Presale tickets are available at Ticketmaster.

The historic show in the Cincinnati area was announced last night (Dec. 3) by local TV station WCPO after airing a documentary special commemorating the 40th anniversary of the tragedy, The Who: The Night That Changed Rock. Townshend, Daltrey, and long-time manager Bill Curbishley were interviewed for the special. 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, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey and backing vocals by Billy Nicholls, along with orchestra conductor Keith Levenson, lead violinist Katie Jacoby and lead cellist Audrey Q. Snyder. The concerts will include songs from The Who’s new album, titled WHO, their first full-length studio release in 13 years, available this Friday, Dec. 6.

Local symphonies will again be joining The Who for the 2020 U.S. shows.

Don’t be surprised if The Who end up adding to the visit. Townshend took to Instagram in late September to say that “we’re doing the New Orleans Jazz Festival, I believe.”
