Two Are New: The Who adds two North American dates to its 2017 tour

118

Courtesy of The WhoThe Who continues to expand its 2017 summer tour itinerary, as the British rock legends have added a pair of new North American concerts in July.

The first date is scheduled for July 13 at Festival d’Été de Québec — or the Quebec Summer Festival — in Québec City, Canada, while the second will take place July 20 in Uncasville, Connecticut.

The Québec performance currently will serve as the kickoff of the band’s summer trek, which is plotted out through an August 16 show in Stateline, Nevada. As previously reported, the outing also includes a six-date Las Vegas engagement at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which runs from July 29 to August 11.

In other news, several items of memorabilia signed by The Who’s members are being auctioned via CharityStars.com to raise money for the U.K.’s Teenage Cancer Trust charity.

Among the items are a Gibson Les Paul guitar autographed by Pete Townshend, a poster for the band’s 2017 Teenage Cancer Trust benefit concerts signed by Townshend and Roger Daltrey, and a number of other collectibles signed by Daltrey.
