The Who have confirmed details about their “Who Hits Fifty” tour, including two Irish dates:

  • The O2, Dublin on November 26th
  • The Odyssey Arena, Belfast on November 28th

The show will see the band play all the classic anthems: ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, ‘My Generation’, ‘Baba O’Riley’, ‘Who Are You’, ‘I Can’t Explain’, P’inball Wizard’, ‘Behind Blue Eyes’ and many more.

Pete Townshend commented: “Trying to stay young. Not wearing socks. Growing a great big Woodcutter’s beard. Might even wear a check shirt on stage and get a tattoo of a Union Jack. Always a fashion victim. But under no illusions. We are what we are, and extremely good at it, but we’re lucky to be alive and still touring. If I had enough hairs to split I would say that for thirteen years since 1964 The Who didn’t really exist, so we are really only thirty-seven”.
