Legendary rock band The Who will be revving up their acclaimed MOVING ON! TOUR for a handful of rescheduled shows next spring, returning to the U.S. to perform shows that were postponed during the fall leg of the tour due to singer Roger Daltrey’s brief illness. The revised dates include stops in three cities originally scheduled on the historic 2019 run which featured the iconic band with symphony backing. The 2020 rescheduled shows will take place in Dallas, TX on April 27, Houston TX, on April 30, and Denver, CO on May 2. All tickets for original dates will be honored.
The spring and fall legs of the MOVING ON! TOUR have generated the most unanimous outpouring of acclaim from critics and fans of any live rock show of 2019. Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend’s pairing with acclaimed local symphony orchestras each night won raves across North America, with critics also hailing the duo’s intimate acoustic numbers as a once-in-a-lifetime rock experience. “They’re not getting older. They’re getting better. You better, you better, you bet.” hailed the Worcester Telegram, with Pollstar Magazine affirming “Daltrey is in peak form, and so is Townshend, lavishing his trademarked windmill guitar motion.”
The full live band, which includes guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey, passionately performed THE WHO’s many classics, as well as some songs from The Who’s brand new album, titled WHO, their first full-length album in 13 years, available everywhere December 6. The orchestral dynamic delivered by local symphonies each night put an indelible stamp on the music’s timelessness with the chemistry between Roger and Pete delivering on their trademark cathartic and emotional power. The new single ‘All This Music Must Fade,’ has also drawn praise as “The Who’s defiant post-script” by The New York Times.
Produced by Live Nation, The Who’s North American MOVING ON! TOUR brought the band’s signature brand of powerhouse rock through 29 cities, including a rollicking sold-out barn-burner in Boston’s famed Fenway Park, and a memorable Seattle show where Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder joined them onstage for a rousing version of “The Punk And the Godfather,” with Eddie’s wife and daughter in attendance. The tour also wound down in grand style, with a series of October shows at LA’s historic Hollywood Bowl, the first time the band played three dates at the landmark venue during one touring cycle.
