Roger Daltrey is doing a little damage control as he is explaining exactly what Pete Townshend meant when he said 2015 would be the last big tour for The Who.
"People have read that wrong," says Daltrey. "We aren't finishing after that. We intend to go on doing music until we drop, but we have to be realistic about our age. The touring is incredibly grinding on the body and we have to draw a line in the sand somewhere. This will be the last old-fashioned, big tour." And, it will not be their 50th anniversary tour. "Our anniversary is actually right now. We were The Who 50 years ago this month. To us, 2015 is just another year."
As for new music, Daltrey says, "We're hoping to do an album [next year]. If we play any of those songs, we'll have to do them in separate shows and announce that ahead of time. If people want to buy those tickets in great numbers, fabulous."
But up next is something old again, another deluxe reissue of Tommy on November 11th.
