About the band

Since emerging in the mid-1960s as a new and incendiary force in rock n' roll, The Who have played more than 2,000 gigs and established themselves as one of the top three greatest rock legacies in music history.

They have appeared at Woodstock, Monterey Pop, Glastonbury (twice), Hyde Park (four times), The Isle of Wight (three times), the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, Desert Trip, Shea Stadium, The Superbowl half-time show and Live Aid – to name but a very few.

The Who wound up their Who Hits Back tour of the USA in November last year having wowed audiences in more than 30 cities. Media and fans agreed that the band were as good as, if not better than ever and that the orchestral arrangements, most of which were done by the legendary David Campbell, brought a new depth and excitement to Pete Townshend’s music.

The band debuted in 1964 with a trio of anthems I Can’t Explain, The Kids Are Alright and My Generation. Since then, they have delivered to the world hits such as Baba O’Riley, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Pinball Wizard, Who Are You, and You Better You Bet.

Inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990, the band has placed 27 Top 40 singles in the United States and United Kingdom and 17 Top Ten albums, including the 1969 groundbreaking rock opera Tommy, 1971's pummelling Live At Leeds, 1973's Quadrophenia and 1978's Who Are You. 

Simon Townshend

Special guest: Simon Townshend

Simon Townshend was born with music in his blood. The son of England’s top big-band reed man, Cliff Townshend, and younger brother of The Who legend Pete Townshend, Simon has been recording and performing since the age of nine, when he was recruited to add vocals to The Who classic Tommy. Although the Townshend name is familiar, Simon’s music has its own original sound and his song writing plunders great depths and returns with unique compelling narratives set against haunting melodies.
