The Who Announce Opening Band for U.S. Tour
Hey, Who fans! Curious who snagged one of the greatest rock gigs in the world: opening for the Who on their upcoming U.S. tour? The band just announced that they’ve tapped Los Angeles-based Vintage Trouble to open on the first part of their impending trek. The tour — which is the band’s first U.S. jaunt in four years — will kick off Nov. 1 in Sunrise, Fla. Expect to hear songs from the Who’s 1973 double release Quadrophenia, plus a barrage of other hits.
The first leg of the tour will wrap on Dec. 9 in Uncasville, Conn., while the second leg will pick up Jan. 28, 2013, in Anaheim, Calif., and run through Feb. 26 in Providence, R.I. Check out a full list of tour dates here.
On the road, founding Who guys Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend perform alongside bass player Pino Palladino, drummer Zak Starkey and Pete’s younger Simon Townshend on guitar and back-up vocals, to name a few.
Look for Townshend to release his autobiography, Who I Am, on Oct. 1. Fans can also check out the Who’s documentary film, Quadrophenia - Can You See Real Me, on VH1 on Halloween.
