    The Who to Cure Summertime Blues

    U.S. tour, "Lifehouse" DVD next for Townshend and the boys


    The Who have lined up eighteen dates for a summer tour that will kick off on June 28th in Las Vegas. According to a post on guitarist Pete Townshend's official Web site, the concerts may feature new material and a new release may also be in the works.
    Tickets for the first three shows will go on sale February 17th. Internet sales for performances in Boston and George, Washington, will begin on February 12th and 16th, respectively. Other on-sale dates range from early March through early May. Bassist John Entwistle's site, www.johnentwistle.com, has a complete list of on-sale dates.

    In other news, Townshend will release Pete Townshend: Music From Lifehouse on DVD and video on February 26th. The 100-minute film captures moments from a series of Townshend shows at Sadler's Wells in London in February 2000.

    Townshend recently closed www.petetownshend.co.uk, his official Web site, with which he had been closely involved. "I decided to do this rather suddenly," he wrote. "The Who are large in the public eye. I felt it best to quit while ahead. Why? I need to concentrate on my writing this year. I need no distractions."

    Despite closing his official site, Townshend will keep his www.eelpie.com Web site operational, on which he will post news, music and video. "You will see less of my personal postings," he wrote. "I'm sorry about that. I have enjoyed writing them. But there is no manageable pathway for feedback from you all, and if I put one in place I would need fifty secretaries to deal with the responses."

    Who tour dates:

    BC, it says on that list of dates that they will be playing Madison Square Garden and The Tweeter Center in Mansfield, MA. Your post info says you are from NY. Those two sites aren't that far away, are they?

    Anyway, I am so glad these guys are going out on tour again! After the concert for New York, where they blew everyone else away, I was so pissed at myself for not going out to see them the last time they were out on tour. 7/26 at the Tweeter Center to quote Sammy "You know I'm going to be there".

    I'm a major Who fan but I'm not spending that kind of money to see them. I did see them a few years ago and they were great. Locally tickets are on sale for $60 - $146. That's fucking insane.

    I agree with you, Dogg, imagine paying $60 to sit on the lawn??? And, most likely, you'll go with at least one other person, so now the two of you are doling out $120-$292, plus whatever fees you have to pay if you get them through an agency.
    Then..when you get there, the beers are at least $5-$6 each! [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    And you have to walk so goddamn far to get them that getting drunk is impossible. (at least that's the case at the Gorge. And who the fuck can get drunk on Coors light anyway?)
