The Who Announce Changes To North American Fall Tour
The Who will be returning to North American this fall to launch the next leg of their 50th anniversary tour and band has announced a series of new dates that are make-ups for postponed shows on their just completed leg.
The band was forced to postpone some of the dates on the spring leg after frontman Roger Daltry was ordered by doctors to rest his voice. The May 9th Louisville, Kentucky concert has been rescheduled for December 4th, the St. Louis show will take place on December 6th and the Kansas City, Missouri stop is now scheduled for December 8th.
The band has also rescheduled two previously announcement shows on the upcoming leg, to allow Daltry more time to rest his voice between shows. The Toronto show will now take place on December 2nd instead of October 21st and their concert in Oakland has been moved to December 13th.
The tour leg will be kicking off on September 14th in San Diego, CA at the Valley View Casino Center and is now scheduled to conclude with the rescheduled show in Oakland at the Oracle Arena.
Guitarist Pete Townshend had this to say about the leg that the band just completed, “The audiences have been amazing, warm and forgiving. Roger has battled sometimes, not so much with his voice as with a muscle problem that may well go back to a car crash in Australia many years ago. Towards the end he got better and better. And happier. Good to see.”
