Rock legend The Who will hit the road soon in the near future. The band announced Thursday Feb 8th at a lunchtime press conference in London, during which they performed a four-song acoustic set, they are going to embark on a 28-city European tour.
The Who, consisting of two surviving original members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, will kick off their tour in Lisbon, Portugal on May 8 and end in Helsinki, Finland on July 9. They said they planned to continue touring around the world after Europe.
The tour will play 28 cities in 14 countries, with tickets for some markets on sale beginning Monday Feb 12th. Every ticket reportedly will include a free "virtual ticket" membership to the Who Tour Club.
