Tour Dates | The Who Hits 50 UK Tour

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The Who announced what they've called "the beginning of a long goodbye" this morning by revealing the first leg of their The Who Hits 50 World Tour. The tour will start with a run of U.K. shows in November and December. According to Townshend, this tour will be the last major jaunt for the band.

Townshend and Daltrey performed a short acoustic set at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London today as part of the tour announcement. The tour's setlist will include "hits, picks, mixes and misses" from throughout The Who's career according to Townshend. Today, nine U.K. shows were announced with the first set to take place on November 30 in Glasgow and the leg currently set to end with a show in London on December 17. Pete also revealed at the press conference/performance that he will soon enter the studio with Roger to record a follow-up to 2006's Endless Wire.
