The Who, a band that has previously said it is retiring, are coming back in 2015 for what the members say is their last world tour, really.

The production, dubbed “The Who Hits 50! Tour,” kicked off this week in the United Kingdom and comes to Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center on Oct. 23, 2015.

The tour marks the band’s 50th anniversary, although its two remaining original members — Roger Daltrey, 70, and Pete Townshend, 69 — are well over that age.

Daltrey was quoted as saying, “This is the beginning of the long goodbye.”

Townshend says the tour will include “Hits, picks, mixes and misses.”

In a 2013 interview announcing the tour in Rolling Stone magazine, Townshend said they aren’t breaking up, but “intend to go on doing music until we drop.”

Tickets for the Consol Energy Center show are on sale now for $39.50 to $139.50.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
