After playing for over five decades and having their name for themselves as one of the most influential band of all time, The Who is finally closing their doors, as they announced the possible last tour of the band this 2015.
In a report by Rolling Stone, frontman Roger Daltrey is calling it quits after blaming their age for the culmination of the band’s tenure.
He announced in an interview that the band would be back together for one last time.
“I do know this is the last big tour we’ll ever do,” Daltrey said.
“We have to be realistic.
I want us to stop at the top of our game when we are still really good at what we do.
The quality of the music is really what this is all about.” With Pete Townshend scheduled to make a new record, Daltrey claimed that the series of shows would last as long as they want it to be.
He continued by saying that their last big concerts might last up to two years.
“If people want to add shows and we still feel great, then it will go for a while longer, but not that much longer,” he added.
“It might last two years.
I also know that Pete wants to make another record.” After playing a few shows, Daltry revealed that The Who definitely has been a big influence for a lot of people after seeing mixed age brackets during their shows.
“It’s just great to see an audience that goes from the grandchildren to the children of our original fans, with our original fans.
It’s just great to see that kind of audience at a rock show.
When we started, it was all teenagers or people in their early twenties.
Now you get eight-year-olds with eighty-year-olds.
I’m proud of that.
We’ve always believed that music could unite people, but that demographic at a show was unheard of 50 years ago.”
