The Who tour date at Manchester Arena has been rescheduled to 5 April 2017.
To celebrate the 100th concert held at The Royal Albert Hall to benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust, The Who will play a new acoustic presentation of Pete Townshend's Rock Opera Tommy.
Two shows have been announced at the legendary London venue on March 30th and April 1st 2017 where the band will play the opera in full followed by a selection of other great Who songs.
The band have also announced that the five UK dates scheduled for August /September 2016, originally billed as 'Greatest Hits’ shows, will be moved to 2017 to coincide with the Royal Albert Hall dates.
For the rescheduled Greatest Hits shows Roger and Pete will play the hits as well as some lesser known Who songs and also include a new focused presentation of Tommy drawn from the Royal Albert Hall concerts including a brand new video programme specially produced for these shows.
This UK set will emulate the historic period around Live At Leeds and Woodstock when the central pivot of The Who’s show was always their performance of Tommy.
For Who fans new and old this is something special that hasn’t been done by the band or seen by their audience since 1970.
The new Manchester Arena date will be Wednesday 5 April 2017.
All tickets remain valid for the new date.
