The Who (opens in new tab) have announced that their Moving On tour has been extended into 2020.
The run of 12 dates will see Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend make up three rescheduled shows in Dallas, Houston and Denver, while it’s also been revealed that they’ll play six nights at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas between May 5 and 16.
Their date in Cincinnati on April 23 will be the first time the band have played there since December 3, 1979 – a night that saw 11 people die in a stampede outside the Riverfront Coliseum.
The Who have announced they’ll make a donation from the concert to the P.E.M. Memorial – the organisation that was founded in honour of the people that lost their lives that night. The organisation provides college scholarships for students at Finneytown High School.
Daltrey and Townshend will be joined by guitarist Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey, backing vocalist Billy Nicholls, conductor Keith Levenson, violinist Katie Jacoby and cellist Audrey Snyder.
Along with a selection of classic tracks, The Who will perform material from their new album Who, which is released tomorrow (December 6).
One dollar from every ticket sold will be donated to Teen Cancer America and they’ll go on sale later today (opens in new tab).
