The Who Hits 50: The Who + Maximo Park

Rock legends, The Who, have announced a UK tour for November / December 2014 to celebrate their 50th anniversary!

Hometown heroes Maximo Park will be The Who’s very special guests when they play the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on December 9th.

The Who Hits 50 UK tour will see the band take their audience on an ‘Amazing Journey’ through their entire career, from the days of The High Numbers to classic albums such as Who’s Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation, Live At Leeds and up to the present day.

The show, which guitarist Pete Townshend describes as ‘Hits, Picks, Mixes and Misses’, will see the band play all the classic anthems as well as tackling deeper cuts from their catalogue, including Won’t Get Fooled Again, My Generation, Baba O’Riley, Who Are You, I Can’t Explain, Pinball Wizard, Behind Blue Eyes and many more. Lead singer Roger Daltrey said, 'This is the beginning of the long goodbye'.

This event takes place at Metro Radio Arena, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
