After kicking off their 2015 tour, The Who recently announced that they may have been in their last major tour of their career, as they expect fans to storm in to their shows that stretches from this May up to October.
According to a Rolling Stone report, The Who singer Roger Daltrey revealed that in line with their ages, the band wants to be remembered while they are still on a high and not while they struggle to perform for their fans.
“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.” Kicking off with their tour, The Who is expected to be on the road in the East for the whole May before flying to Europe in June, where they are expected to play a few shows in Ireland, London, France and The Netherlands before heading back to North America including a few shows in Canada until October.
“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.” “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.”
