The Who is gearing up for a round of summer concerts – mostly at festivals, so far – that will mark its first tour since traveling the world in 2004.
The band is confirmed to top the bill at the U.K.’s Wireless Festival June 25, followed by co-headlining slots with the Red Hot Chili Peppers at T In The Park and Ireland’s Oxegen Festival in July.
That same month, The Who will do two gigs at the 4,000-seat Liverpool Summer Pops before venturing to Germany and Austria for a series of gigs including the Lovely Days Festival.
The Who’s Live 8 set in London last July was its only performance of 2005. The band’s last world tour wrapped in August 2004.
Founding members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey will once again be accompanied by Zak Starkey on drums and Pino Palladino on bass.
