Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The WHO have today confirmed that their US tour is to go ahead despite the death of fellow band member, bassist John Entwistle. The Las Vegas show on 6/28 and the Irvine CA. 6/29 show will be re-scheduled for later in the tour. Details will follow shortly.
Both Daltrey and Townshend view the tour as a “tribute to John Entwistle”, and to the loss of an irreplaceable friend. The Entwistle family is in full support of the decision to continue and feel this is what John would have wanted. His son Christopher said today “ He lived for music and will always live within The WHO’s music. This is what he would have wished and our love goes out to the remaining band members and the entourage that makes up THE WHO family.”
