The Who Will Tour North America Performing “Quadrophenia” 

Brace yourselves folks because The Who are embarking on an Arena tour of North America playing their album “Quadrophenia” (during the anniversary of it’s 40th year), and they’re not just playing a handful of dates here and there.  Founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend will be backed buy  Zak Starkey (Ringo‘s kid-drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), Chris Stainton (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals) will kick off a tour November 1st with it’s 1st leg going to December 9th then in 2013  leg 2 kicks off in Anaheim January 28th and goes to the end of February in Rhode Island

I’m asking as a fan that we get ourselves some better performances than the one we got at the Super Bowl whatever year that was. We do not need any more Pete Townshend fake wind-mills.  If you can’t do it, don’t do it.

For more info, head to the Who’s Official Website here or search Twitter with the hash-tag #TheWhoTour , I’m sure you’ll find some interesting commentary about it. The dates lay below, see if they’re coming to your town

Jay Porks here.. I like to go to shows and pass along the experiences to you in words, photos and videos. In my spare time I do Social Media for the Meat Puppets in addition to hosting a weekly podcast. Remember folks it\'s not all about the technicalities of the situation more than it is about what the situation brings to the technicalities... The Jay Porks Experience, take a stroll my shoes for a little while...
