The Who Announce Rescheduled Sprint Center Show on Dec. 8
The WHO have announced details regarding rescheduled performances--from the tour’s first leg--based on doctors’ advice that lead singer Roger Daltrey go on vocal rest, due to swollen vocal cords. The show at Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO has been rescheduled for Dec. 8. All performances will include special guests: 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. Tickets for the rescheduled show will be honored for Dec. 8. Tickets may be purchased for the Dec. 8 show at SprintCenter.com starting Thursday, June 4.
THE WHO have sold over 100 million records since forming in 1964; they brought together four different personalities and in effect produced a musical hurricane. Each of them was a pioneer. Wildman drummer Keith Moon beat his kit with a chaotic elegance; stoic bassist John Entwistle held down the center with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist; raging intellectual Pete Townshend punctuated the epic universality of his songs with the windmill slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; and Roger Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly virile macho swagger. They exploded conventional rhythm and blues structures, challenged pop music conventions, and redefined what was possible on stage, in the recording studio, and on vinyl. As they enter their 50th year, the band is still going strong, winning rave reviews for their performances of QUADROPHENIA in 2013.
