Thanks to their thrilling blend of mod-pop, psychedelic, hard-rock and self-destruction, The Who tickets are often just as hard to come by now as they were in their 60’s heyday. Formed in 1964, lead vocalist Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend, bassist Pete Entwistle and madcap drummer Keith Moon exploded onto the scene a year later with a string of teenage anthems (“My Generation,” “The Kids Are All Right”) that defined the era. The Who then consolidated their iconic status with a number of dynamic live performances at the Isle of Wight, Monterey Pop, and Woodstock festivals; however, The Who achieved their biggest success with 1969’s Tommy, an ambitious rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind boy who becomes the leader of a messianic movement. The first half of the 70’s proved to be just as fruitful for The Who with the release of their only UK number one album, Who’s Next, and another critically-acclaimed venture into rock opera with 1973’s Quadrophenia. After some rocky times that included the death of drummer Keith Moon, The Who reunited several times throughout the 80’s, most notably for Live Aid and a 25th Anniversary tour. They would reconvene permanently in the mid-90’s when they invited Ringo Starr’s drummer son Zak Starkey and Pete’s guitarist brother Simon to join their line-up. Following Entwistle’s death in 2002, The Who recruited bassist Pino Palladino, went onto release their first studio album in 24 years, Endless Wire, and became a thriving live act, topping the bill at Glastonbury 2007, performing at the London leg of Live 8 and embarking on a mammoth 112-date world tour. Cited as a major influence on artists as diverse as Queen, The Flaming Lips and My Chemical Romance, The Who remain just as in-demand as they have ever been, as evident with recent headline slots at the 2010 Super Bowl half-time show and the London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony. The Who tickets for their North American tour, where they will perform Quadrophenia in its entirety, went on sale in 2012.
