Encore for The Who?

In an interview with London’s Evening Standard, Pete Townshend revealed that The Who will launch a world tour in 2015 to celebrate the legendary band’s 50th anniversary.
The news comes just weeks before fans anticipate the Super Deluxe release of Tommy, which hits shelves on November 11th.
Townshend, the band’s guitarist and song writer, is one of only two of the original band members who remain alive, the other being lead singer Roger Daltrey. Drummer Keith Moon died in 1978. John Entwistle, the band’s bassist, died in 2002.
The Who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
The 68-year-old British rocker sites that there are many venues they have yet to play in the world. One place in particular was Eastern Europe, which was closed off to them during The Who’s heyday.
The band formed in 1964 and formerly broke up in 1982. The timeline for their popularity coincided with the coldest years of The Cold War between NATO and Warsaw Pact countries, backed primarily behind the United States and the Soviet Union, respectively.
The Who had launched a world tour back in 1989 to celebrate their 25th anniversary.
