“We’ve been anxious to work together before we drop dead”. Pete Townshend said at a conference in London where he was accompanied by Roger Daltrey. “I don’t know how many more years I’ll be able to sing this music”, added Daltrey. The result is a 36-date Quadrophenia Tour which the band will embark on this fall. The highlighting feature of the tour is the band’s signature 1973 rock opera style performed in its entirety. This tour is band’s first in the last four years where its North American leg will kick off on November 1, 2012, going through to February 26, 2013. Pino Palladino, Simon Townshend, Chris Stainton, Loren Gold and Frank Simes will be forming the lineup for this tour with Townshend and Daltrey. Check out tickets to The Who in California:
