The Who Postpone Spring Tour

After serious consideration, it is with much regret that THE WHO have postponed their UK tour, due to start next Monday March 16th in Manchester at the Manchester Arena. The dates will be rescheduled for later in the year. All tickets will be honoured.

The fans' safety is paramount and given the developing Coronavirus concerns, the band felt that they had no option but to postpone the shows as a precaution.

Singer Roger Daltrey assures fans that the shows will “Definitely happen and it may be the last time we do a tour of this type, so keep those tickets, as the shows will be fantastic.”

Pete Townshend said the band, ”Haven't reached this decision easily, but given the concerns about public gatherings, we couldn’t go ahead".

The northern dates affected are:

March 16 – Manchester Arena
March 25 – Leeds First Direct Arena
April 6 – Liverpool M&S Bank Arena

Rescheduled dates:

8 March 2021 - M&S Arena, Liverpool
15 March 2021 - First Direct Arena, Leeds
29 March 2021 - Manchester Arena
