THE WHO ANNOUNCE THEIR MOST INTIMATE SHOW IN 40 YEARS!
ON SALE 11 AM 11.12.19! Ticket details: http://smarturl.it/TheWhoBanquetShow …
To celebrate the release of ‘WHO’ – The Who’s ‘best album since 1975….’ The Who announce they will play their smallest live show in over 40 years!
‘Who’ is currently at Number One at the midweek stage on this week’s Official Albums Chart. If it stays there it will be the band’s first UK chart topper since ‘Who’s Next’ back in September 1971.
On Monday, the album was 6,000 sales ahead of its closest chart rival – Robbie Williams’ The Christmas Present.
Pete Townshend says of ‘Who’: “This album is almost all new songs written last year, with just two exceptions… There is no theme, no concept, no story, just a set of songs that I (and my brother Simon) wrote to give Roger Daltrey some inspiration, challenges and scope for his newly revived singing voice.
“Roger and I are both old men now, by any measure, so I’ve tried to stay away from romance, but also from nostalgia if I can. I didn’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Memories are okay, and some of the songs refer to the explosive state of things today.”
The Who also head out on a headline UK arena tour in March and April 2020. Tickets are on sale from Planet Rock Tickets now.
