Who fans in the U.S. will have more opportunities to catch the legendary British rockers live this summer. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will precede their recently announced first-ever residency in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with four new shows in July.
The multi-platinum sellers made the announcement on March 20 in an update posted at their official Facebook page. The July appearances will be the “Pinball Wizard” hitmakers first U.S. dates since their two hugely successful shows at Desert Trip last October.
The summer romp begins July 16, in Canandaigua, New York, at Constellation Brands–Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center. Led by Who co-founders Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, the band will make stops in National Harbor, Maryland, as well as Atlantic City, before wrapping up July 25 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, at Van Andel Arena.
Select presales will begin Wed., March 22 at 10:00 a.m. local time. Tickets will go on sale to the public starting Fri., March 24 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.
The Who will launch their 2017 touring year with a two-night stand March 30 – April 1 at London's historic Royal Albert Hall in celebration of the band's 100th benefit performance for Teen Cancer Trust with a special acoustic performance of their classic rock opera Tommy. The band will then perform a handful of postponed U.K. dates from 2016, which kick off April 3 in Liverpool, United Kingdom, at Echo Arena and will wrap up April 12 in Birmingham, United Kingdom, at Barclaycard Arena.
The Who will also hit Sin City for a six-show residency, which will run between July 29 – Aug. 11 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
