The Who Announce 2015 'Farewell' Tour Dates [FULL SCHEDULE]
We can't be sure The Who are calling it quits after their recently announced 2015 tour, but it would be terrible of you to call their "bluff" and miss out on a chance to see one of the finest rock bands to ever grace our planet.
The Who Hit 50! Tour is likely coming to an American town near you; that's as far as the absolute truth stretches.
According to a press release (via JamBase): "Setlists on these shows will take their audience on an Amazing Journey through The Who's entire career, from the band's early days to classic albums through the present day."
Guitarist Pete Townshend and lead singer Roger Daltrey are the only original members still in the band.
Last year, The Guardian reported that 2015 would mark the final year of touring for the band. But there appears to be some confusion as to the band's intentions to carry on past then.
"The end of this year  is our 50th anniversary, just like the Stones," Daltrey said in the same story. "They're on the road again — we could have never out-Stoned the Stones. Are we going to do one more 'something' or do we just retire, gracefully? Or disgracefully. I don't know. Or do you just say, 'Thank you very much,' to a great night? I think that's tragic in music — I don't think you should ever say, 'This is the last time'. Music isn't like that."
