As previously reported, Roger Daltrey of The Who will be touring the UK performing Tommy, The Who's iconic 1969 rock opera, from start to finish -- something The Who never did, even during their 1989 Tommytour.
The big news is that several North American dates have been added from September through early November. Tickets for the AEG Live-produced tour go on sale May 19 (Canadian performances) and 10 a.m. May 20 (U.S. shows). An American Express card member pre-sale begins 10 a.m. May 16 via AEGLive.com (ending May 18 in Canada and May 19 in the US).
The six-week tour launches Sept. 13 in Hollywood, Florida, and ends Nov. 2 Winnipeg, Canada. See the full schedule below.
