The Who 50th Anniversary Tour To Launch In December

Iconic rock act The Who will launch a World Tour to celebrate their 50th Anniversary around Christmas according to a new interview with Pete Townshend posted on Billboard.com. Townshend says the band will play U.K. dates in December followed by North American dates in 2015.

"It will be a world tour. I'm not crazy about going on the road, but I'm in good shape and once I start doing it -- and I'm still very good at it -- I'll take some pleasure from it," Townshend told Billboard. Pete is also combing through his archives to find material for a potential new Who album, "I'm trying to [look] through my 20,000 hours of complete and utter disorganized music [to find possible songs]. I'll be pulling some songs out of [his long-gestating project] 'Floss' to give to Roger [Daltrey] to see if we've got enough to make an album. It might be a big waste of time, but I'm hoping there will be an album."

In other The Who news, the band will release The Who - Quadrophenia: Live in London in a variety of video formats on June 10. The new live release was filmed on July 8, 2013 during one of the band's full performances of their legendary Quadrophenia album.
