The Who 50th Aniversary Tour


The Who 50th Anniversary Tour

2014 sees The Who, one of rock’s legendary and defining bands celebrate 50 years in the business and will be performing at Capital FM Arena Nottingham on Friday 5 December 2014.

The Who hits 50 UK tour will see the band take their audience on an ‘Amazing Journey’ through their entire musical history from the days of The High Numbers to classic albums such as Who’s Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation and Live At Leeds, up to the present day.

The show which Pete Townshend describes as ‘Hits, Picks, Mixes and Misses’ will see the band play all the classic anthems as well as tackling deeper cuts from their catalogue.

On the tour announcement, Roger Daltrey said, “This is the beginning of the long goodbye.” Who hits 50 will not only celebrate the fantastic contribution The Who have made to our musical heritage but also their remarkable contribution to youth culture old and new.

The Who have sold over 100 million records since forming in 1964, they brought together four different personalities and in effect produced a musical hurricane. They exploded conventional rhythm and blues structures, challenged pop music conventions, and redefined what was possible on stage, in the recording studio, and on vinyl. As they enter their 50th year, the band is still going strong winning rave reviews for their performances of Quadrophenia in 2013.
