LONDON (VIP-NEWS) — Legendary UK rockers The Who have announced they will play their final ever concert tour in 2015.
"That will be the last big tour," the band`s frontman, Roger Daltrey, told Rolling Stone in a recent interview.
Daltry went on to add, however, that that will not mean the end of The Who making music.
"People have read that wrong though. 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."
Unlike other acts, including the Rolling Stones who have mounted tours to celebrate their 50th anniversary, The Who`s tour will just be for the sake of a tour, as this month already marks their 50th anniversary.
"We were the Who fifty years ago this month. To us, 2015 is just another year," Daltry said.
He added that these final shows will be made up of songs from throughout their career so that the fans get to hear their favourites.
"The fans might want that, but most people that want to come to a show want to hear what they grew up with. Let`s not kid ourselves. We will always sell more tickets if we play the hits. That`s a fact."
