Until 13th February 2016
Before starting a world tour, the legendary British rock group, The Who, will be on stage in London at the Arena Wembley from 11th – 13th February 2016.
Famous worldwide, The Who is undoubtedly one of the most influential British rock groups of its generation, on a par with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Started in 1964 by Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon, the foursome came to fame with I Can’t Explain, which reached the Top Ten in Britain, soon followed by My Generation and the famous rock opera Tommy. With 11 albums to their name, The Who became an icon of rock music far beyond their home in the UK.
An exceptional concert at the Arena Wembley
After fifty years, the legendary group returns to the stage for a memorable farewell tour: The Who Hits 50 Tour 2016. Following singer Roger Daltrey’s health problems, the two remaining original members, Daltrey and Townshend, with others, interrupted their autumn 2015 tour. But now Roger Daltrey has recovered, the group is returning to the stage with friends. The British rock stars are performing at the Arena Wembley on 13th February 2016. The Who then play Detroit, Michigan at the start of a tour of the United States and Canada. The last concert of The Who Hits 50 2016 will be at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas.

Watch a legendary film at the Eventim Apollo
Quadrophenia is one of The Who’s legendary albums. Released in 1973, the rock opera was composed entirely by Pete Townshend and reached no.2 in the British album charts. The double album tells the story of Jimmy, a young mod from the 60s and his problems with his family, friends and in finding himself. The film Quadrophenia, based on the album and directed by Franc Roddam, came out in 1979. To mark The Who’s London appearance, the Eventim Apollo is giving fans a chance to see this great cinema classic once more, in what promises to be a totally immersive experience, taking the audience right back to the sounds and images of the 60s.
