The Who To Tour U.S. In '06
Rolling Stone is reporting that The Who will go on a world tour in the summer of 2006, with trips to Europe, Australia, Japan, South America and the US.
The current lineup includes founding members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, Townshend's brother Simon, keyboardist "Rabbit" Bundrick, Pino Palladino on bass and Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr's son) on drums. For a good part of 2005, Starkey has been touring with Oasis, and Palladino with the John Mayer Trio.
The Who have been working on a new album intermittently for the past several years, but nobody is saying (so far) whether any of those new songs will be heard on the tour. The band is scheduled to be back in the studio once again in February, continuing to work on the long awaited Who2 project.
