The Who have announced a UK tour to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary.

The band’s Who Hits 50 tour is being described by Pete Townshend as “Hits, picks, mixes and misses” and will see the band play their hit singles as well as tackling deeper cuts from their catalogue.

On the tour announcement, Roger Daltrey said, “This is the beginning of the long goodbye.”

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”.

The Who Hits 50 tour dates are:

November 30: Glasgow SSE Hyrdo
December 2: Leeds First Direct Arena
December 5: Nottingham Capital FM Arena
December 7: Birmingham NIA
December 9: Newcastle Metro
December 11: Liverpool Echo Arena
December 13: Manchester Phones 4U Arena
December 15: Cardiff Motorpoint
December 17: London The O2


Tickets will be on sale on 9am GMT on July 4 from www.aeglive.co.uk.
