The band have announced that the five UK dates scheduled for August /September 2016, originally billed as 'Greatest Hits’ shows, will be moved to 2017 to coincide with the new Royal Albert Hall dates.
For the rescheduled Greatest Hits shows Roger and Pete will play the hits as well as some lesser known Who songs and also include a new focused presentation of Tommy drawn from the Royal Albert Hall concerts including a brand new video programme specially produced for these shows.
This UK set will emulate the historic period around Live At Leeds and Woodstock when the central pivot of The Who’s show was always their performance of Tommy. For Who fans new and old this is something special that hasn’t been done by the band or seen by their audience since 1970.
Tickets for the shows originally scheduled for late August and September will be valid for the new shows. Any customers who cannot make the new dates are entitled to a full refund from their point of purchase. Deadline for refunds is 5pm August 12. The band’s European dates in Germany, Austria and Italy will still take place as scheduled.
