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.
'One of the most enduring and influential rock groups of all time' (Rolling Stone) Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon hit the big time in the mid-60s...and continued hitting it, smashing up their instruments and generally challenging the system for the next 30 years. The deaths of Moon (1978) and Entwhistle (2002) hasn't stopped the band, and Daltry and Townshend - with a little help from their friends - still put on an awesome live show.
The Who tour dates
Indie-Rock band from Newcastle, fronted by the ever charming Paul Smith, whose tightly-wound songs are biting, contemporary takes on the familiar feelings of being trapped in a small town and desperately needing to escape. Their tunes vibrate with contained energy, and the anger more than occasionally spills out into faster, harder pop-rock. With three UK top 10 albums, two top 20 albums, along with eight UK top 40 singles, the boys continue to 'apply some pressure' to their sound and success.
