Pete Townshend Plans Epic Summer with The Who, Billy Idol and Alfie Boe

It’s been on heck of a farewell tour, but even three years later, The Who‘s last ever tour is still going strong.  The group just announced another six shows at Las Vegas’ Casesar Palace.  Roger Daltrey will power through his viral meningitis and finish up in Vegas before Pete Townshend continues on for another short leg in celebration of The Who’s 1973 double album, “Quadrophenia.”

This leg of the journey is dubbed the “Classic ‘Quadrophenia'” and is a rock opera with orchestra.  Now, here’s where is gets REALLY excited, the creator of “Rebel Yell,” Billy Idolhttps://www.ticketlodge.com/billy-idol-tickets.aspx will join Townshend and the live orchestra for four performances in NYC, L.A. and Lenox, MA.  In addition to Billy Idol, tenor singer Alfie Boe will also join to sing the parts originally voiced by Daltrey.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing Classic Quadrophenia Stateside through the month of September,” Townshend said in a statement. “Melding the contrasting sounds of Quadrophenia with a symphony has been a really unique and powerful way to reach a wide audience of classical and pop music lovers alike. I couldn’t be more excited to see it continue in the U.S.”
