The Who set for Las Vegas residency
The Who have announced they will launch an exclusive Las Vegas residency this summer at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
The dates will begin on July 29th.
One of rock’s most legendary and defining bands, The Who join the home of the greatest entertainers in the world as the first rock band to take residency at
The Colosseum since the venue opened in 2003.
Tickets for the first run of six shows, scheduled to run through August 11th, will go on sale to the public on Friday.
The residency is presented jointly by Caesars Entertainment and AEG Presents.
Fans can expect the band to take them on an ‘Amazing Journey’ through their entire career from the days of The High Numbers to classic albums such as Who’s Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia, My Generation, and Live at Leeds.
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 centre with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist.
Both are sadly deceased.
Set to perform in Vegas, Pete Townshend punctuated the epic universality of early The Who songs with the windmill slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; while Roger Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly virile macho swagger.
