Iconic rock band The Who has been on their farewell/50th anniversary tour for nearly three years. It was all set to conclude last month in England, but the long goodbye just got longer when the band announced an exclusive Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace beginning July 29, 2017.
Fans can expect to go on an “amazing journey” with the band through their entire career from the days of “The High Numbers” to classic albums such as “Who’s Next,” “Tommy,” “Quadrophenia,” “My Generation” and “Live at Leeds.”
Led by 71-year-old Pete Townshend and 73-year-old Roger Daltrey, The Who joins some of the most legendary entertainers in the world as the first rock band to take residency at the Vegas venue since it opened in 2003. Although the residency is scheduled for six shows, running July 29 through August 11, a statement described it as a “first run” of shows, so we hope to hear more dates announced soon.
The Who formed in 1964 and since then have sold more than 100 million records. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. Each one of the members was and is a pioneer in his expertise and that can still be seen when they perform today.
For a chance to see The Who live look for discounted tickets here on Best of Vegas. The Who will perform July 29, August 1, 4, 7, 9 and 11.
