As part of the Who's first tour in four years, the band is taking its 1973 album Quadrophenia on a 36-city North American tour that stops at the Pepsi Center on Tuesday, February 12. In addition to performing the album live, the touring band, which also includes Pete Townshend's younger brother Simon and drummer Zak Starkey (son of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr), will also delve into Who classics. Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 27 at 10 a.m.
During a press conference earlier today, Townshend said he and frontman Roger Daltrey struggled to find something to do this time around. "So in a sense," Townshend said, "Quadrophenia, for us, this time, was something that we both felt that we could get together on and look at again because the last time we did it was in 1997. That's the reason for now. It's just that we've been anxious to work together before we drop dead."
