The Who bringing ‘final’ tour to Consol Energy Center
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.
