The Who have announced that they are hitting the road on an epic 29-city tour across North America.

The Brit rockers are kicking off their MOVING ON! TOUR in Grand Rapids, Michigan on May 7 during the summer leg of the tour. From there, they will make their way to Toronto on June 1, and then begin the fall leg of the tour in St. Paul, Minnesota on September 7.

Vancouver will be the second to last stop on the fall leg of the tour, as the duo make their way to Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena on October 21.

The legendary foursome blazed onto the music scene in the sixties, but singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend play with symphonic accompaniment this year.

What’s more, the band is set to release its first album of new songs in 13 years.

“The Who are touring again in 2019.  Roger christened this tour Moving On! I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose. Looking forward to seeing you all.  Are you ready?” commented Pete Townshend in a release.

The Who’s fan club pre-sale starts Wednesday, January 16 and runs through Thursday, January 17. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 18.

Further, every pair of tickets purchased online also includes a redeemable code for a CD copy of The Who’s forthcoming album (when it’s released). This offer is available to US and Canada customers only and not valid for tickets purchased via re-sale.

In addition, $1 from each ticket sold for the MOVING ON! TOUR will benefit Teen Cancer America.

Inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 1990, the band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, placing 27 top-forty singles in the United States and United Kingdom and earning 17 Top Ten albums, including the 1969 groundbreaking rock opera Tommy, 1971’s pummelling Live At Leeds, 1973’s Quadrophenia and 1978’s Who Are You.
