The Who announce North American tour dates 2012-13 -- Minneapolis in November
One of the loudest, most boisterous (and oldest) rock acts in the business, the Who, has just revealed details for their first tour in four years to touch North America. A stop in Minneapolis at the Target Center is included.
The 1973 double album Quadrophenia gets special treatment on this 36-date trek, and will be played in its entirety. Full dates below.
Founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend made the announcement of the new dates today, and the tour will run through next year, to make it to the 40th anniversary of the iconic album. "What I remember of the size of Mick Jagger's penis - I remember it as being huge and extremely tasty," Townshend cracked at one point, says Rolling Stone.
More details are popping up at the band's Twitter page.
Additionally, The Who: Quadrophenia - Can You See the Real Me? is hitting movie theaters later this month on July 24. Six Minnesota theaters are hosting the film, which is a documentary look at the album's creation. Check for theater availability here.
