Legendary Rock Band The Who Add Third Hollywood Bowl Show

Legendary rock band The Who have added a third Hollywood Bowl date to the fall leg of their 2019 North American Moving On! Tour. Due to intense demand, the new show will take place on October 24, following the two previous Hollywood Bowl dates on October 11 and October 13. It’s the first time in the band’s celebrated history that they’ve played three dates at the historic venue during one touring cycle. The Bowl dates will also mark their first appearance at the famed amphitheatre since a two-show run performed in April and May of 2006. Tickets for the Hollywood Bowl go on sale Friday, May 17th at 12pm local time at LiveNation.com.

The Who also announced an exciting lineup of special guests opening up for the band on selected dates throughout the autumn leg of the trek: Oasis front man Liam Gallagher, iconic Boston rocker Peter Wolf, and Canadian indie/blues band Reignwolf (see dates below.)

Gallagher will open the 3rd Hollywood Bowl show on October 24. The outspoken singer known for his electrifying stage presence and unblinking perspective released his debut solo album As You Were in 2017 to worldwide acclaim. The album went platinum in the UK and top 40 in the U.S., with the singer currently working on his follow-up album and readying a much-anticipated documentary on his return to music, Liam Gallagher; As It Was, which traces his road back to the rock spotlight.

The Who just wrapped up the first week of shows on the kick-off leg of Moving On!, performing to a sold-out crowd in New York City’s rock cathedral Madison Square Garden on Monday night.

The Who have raised the bar once again on their incredible legacy with Moving On! Never ones for nostalgia, singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend pair with acclaimed local symphony orchestras each night to give Who fans a once-in-a-lifetime live experience.

The band, which includes guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey, serves up The Who’s many classics with full and minimal symphony backing, as well as intimate acoustic numbers and a showstopping Pete/Roger duo performance.

The Who will also be releasing their first album of new songs in thirteen years later this year.

Every pair of tickets purchased online includes a redeemable code for a CD copy of The Who’s forthcoming album when it’s released. This offer is available to US and Canada customers only and not valid for tickets purchased via resale. In addition, $1 from each ticket sold for the Moving On! Tour will benefit Teen Cancer America

ABOUT THE WHO

The Who are one of the top three greatest rock legacies in music history. Their music provoked explosive change and spanned what many critics declare is rock’s most elastic creative spectrum, with Pete Townshend’s song writing moving between raw, prosaic, conceptual, and expressively literate. Their visionary sense of stagecraft headed by Roger Daltrey’s soaring vocal prowess is topped off by the band’s blistering rhythm section.

Emerging in the mid-1960s as a new and incendiary force in rock n’ roll, their brash style and poignant storytelling garnered them one of music’s most passionate followings, with the legendary foursome blazing a searing new template for rock, punk, and everything after.

Inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990, the band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, placing 27 top-forty singles in the United States and United Kingdom and earning 17 Top Ten albums, including the 1969 ground-breaking rock opera Tommy, 1971’s pummeling Live At Leeds, 1973’s Quadrophenia and 1978’s Who Are You.

The Who debuted in 1964 with a trio of anthems “I Can’t Explain,” “The Kids Are Alright” and “My Generation.” Since then they have delivered to the world hits such as “Baba O’Riley,” “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “Pinball Wizard,” Who Are You,” and,” You Better You Bet.”
