The Who plans to do one last big world tour in 2015, and while they will not retire from being a band, they will no longer trek around the globe. “That will be the last big tour,” Roger Daltrey told Rolling Stone. “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.”
Daltrey added that they are “hoping to do an album” next year, but the tour won’t feature the new stuff – they will play the hits. “People don’t want new stuff,” Daltrey added. “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. The economics of the road, obviously, demand that you sell a lot of tickets.”
