Legendary rock band The Who have announced a brand new tour for 2022, THE WHO HITS BACK! The iconic band’s upcoming North American trek promises to be another rock n’ roll knockout, bringing singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend back to U.S. venues two years after their acclaimed MOVING ON! Tour, which wowed audiences with a series of sold-out dates. THE WHO HITS BACK! Tour (see complete list of dates below) will again share the stage with some of the finest orchestras in the U.S. and Canada. Produced by Live Nation, the kick-off date is April 22 in Hollywood, FL at the Hard Rock Live for the spring leg of the tour and returns in the fall on October 2 in Toronto, ON at Scotiabank Arena.

The Who Announce “Moving On!” US Dates For Spring 2020

tour posters, the who, the who tour posters

It looks like The Who will be returning to the US in the Spring of 2020 with three dates that were originally scheduled for the fall but had been postponed when Roger Daltrey fell ill. Fortunately, the singer is now on the mend and they are bringing their “Moving On!” tour back to the United States. Hopefully the three reschedulings will lead to additional shows being done on this side of the pond.

The Tour Dates:
4/27: American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX
4/30: Toyota Center in Houston, TX
5/2: Pepsi Center in Denver, CO

As with the shows that took place before Rogers illness, these gigs will feature both Pete Townsend and himself where they will bejoined by their touring bad and an orchestra made up of localized talent. As expected, any of the tickets for the original performances will be honored at these shows. Were you one of the holders of the original tickets? Hopefully you can make one of these shows.

The Touring Band: Simon Townshend (rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar, backing vocals), Loren Gold (piano, keyboards, jaw harp, backing vocals), Jon Button (bass guitar, backing vocals), Zak Starkey (drums, percussion), Billy Nicholls (backing vocals, tambourine), Katie Jacoby (violin)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As this is just an alert about a rescheduling I won’t add too much more to the mix. I do hope they expand the dates so I can get to check them out. I’ve only ever seen The Who about four times in my life and I’ve never done so for the purposes of reporting to the masses with the website. See you next time.

The Cursed @ Highline Ballroom (5/20/2007)

The Cursed was an interesting side project that featured Bobby Blitz from Overkill and Dan Lorenzo from Hades/Non Fiction. This was announced as their first and last gig but in Rock and Roll things are never quite set in stone. Opening up the night was Joey Belladonna formerly of Anthrax and the Paul Green School Of Rock All-Stars who performed Metal standards. It was a great night and should you want to learn more about it just scroll past the logo. We made sure to document everyone’s performance and take photos of all of them as well.

Artist: The Cursed
Venue: Highline Ballroom (New York, NY)
Opener: Joey Belladonna, School Of Rock All Stars
Date: 5/20/2007
Label: Locomotive Music

If you have been going to a lot of concerts in the New York Area lately then you are already aware of some of the mainstays as far as the venues are concerned. One of the biggest providers of events for the Metal Community has been B.B. King Blues Club and over the course of three years I think we have covered about sixty shows from the venue. The performers have been some of the biggest acts across the wide genre scope that Metal has and now the owners have decided to up their game with the grand opening of The Highline Ballroom. The Highline is located Downtown on 16th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues and the venue is something awesome when it comes right down to it. This spacious room has a larger floor area than B. B. King’s and an upstairs seating area as well as a roomy stage for the bands to give you their all upon. The sound and lighting systems is top notch as well so it would be a treat to come here for the first time and review the appearance of Bobby Blitz’s side project The Cursed. For tonight’s show the Overkill singer would bring with him Joey Belladonna formerly of Anthrax and The School Of Rock All-Stars as the guest openers. Here is what you missed out on if you could not attend.
