The Who to Say Goodbye with Final Tour in 2015?

The Who has revealed plans for what they’re calling their final tour.

But you know as well as I do that when bands say they’re going on their farewell tour, they’re often lying.

But at least the band did clarify and say this tour would be their last assemblage of big shows.

In fact, according to, Roger Daltrey says that although the group is planning their last major tour, they will likely continue on recording and playing occasional shows until the answer to who are you? is, well, dead.

“We aren’t finishing after that,” he said. “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.”

Details on the tour aren’t finished yet, but we do know the band will focus on the Who’s entire career and play the hits instead of featuring one entire album like they did with Quadrophenia on their last tour.

Daltrey also said he and Pete might make a new album, but they would play those songs, not as part of a tour, but maybe stationing themselves at one theater, where they stay for a couple of weeks.

“That means you travel to once place, but you’re stationed there. You aren’t touring. It’s the touring, the schlepping, that kills you.

The music is a joy. “
