The Who have confirmed they will play 1969 album Tommy in full on their 2017 UK tour.
They say: “The Who are incredibly excited about performing Tommy and more in April 2017! Marking the first time that the band will play Tommy in full since 1989, it will be a truly unforgettable tour.”
The Tommy element of the shows will include a new video segment produced specially for these gigs.

As well as Tommy, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey’s band will play a set of their greatest hits and some lesser known tracks.
The Tommy & More dates follow two shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall on March 30 and April 1, at which they will also play Tommy in full.
He said: “The sadness for me is that rock has reached a dead end. The only people saying things that matter are the rappers and most pop is meaningless and forgettable.
“You watch these people and you can’t remember a bloody thing.”
