The Who – Daltrey and Townshend Plan New Album, World Tour
THE WHO are set to record their first album in nearly 25 years, and will back it up with a full world tour complete with several festival appearances. Pete Townshend, one of the two surviving original members along with Roger Daltrey, said on his website: “There will be a tour. We already have European festival dates slotted in June and July.” The original bassist, John Entwistle, died of a heart attack in 2002.
A British and European tour will be followed by an American leg in the autumn and the rest of the world in 2007. The band is believed to be negotiating to play at Scotland’s T in the Park. Townshend also said he would deliver the new studio album – The Who’s first since It’s Hard in 1982. The singer-songwriter and guitarist said: “There will be a new CD sometime in the early summer. I know I’ve cried wolf a few times, but this time I have committed.”
