The Who expands 2017 US summer tour with new show in Lake Tahoe

The Who continues to add U.S. dates to their 2017 summer tour schedule. The legendary British rockers have confirmed a new show that will take Aug. 16 in Stateline, Nevada, at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena At Harveys.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers made the announcement on April 11 in an update posted at their official Facebook page. The news follows last week's announcement of a headline appearance at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park as part of Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, which runs between Aug. 11 – Aug. 13 along with the multi-platinum seller's first-ever Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The Lake Tahoe show brings the total number of North American stops up to a dozen dates. The summer U.S. romp will follow the “Pinball Wizard” hitmaker's current U.K. tour, which will wrap up April 12 in Birmingham, United Kingdom, at Barclaycard Arena.

Select presales begin Tues.,  April 11 at 10 a.m. PST through Thurs., April 13 at 10 p.m. PST. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Fri., April 14 at 10.00 a.m. PST. For more information, click here.

The Who launched their 2017 touring year with a two-night charity benefit for Teen Cancer Trust held  March 30 – April 1 at London's historic Royal Albert Hall. The shows featured Who founding members Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and company performing their pioneering rock opera Tommy in its entirety for the first time in 27 years.

The Who will kick off their U.S. tour on July 16, in Canandaigua, New York, at Constellation Brands–Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center. The summer romp will include a headline appearance at Quebec City Summer Festival, which runs from July 6 - July 16, as well as the band's first-ever Sin City residency, which will run between July 29 – Aug. 11 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.  Tickets for all Las Vegas dates and most Who events are available at AXS.
