“Just because it is The Who with an orchestra, in no way does it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music,” said singer Roger Daltrey in a statement. “It is full throttle Who with horns and bells on.”

Guitarist Pete Townshend added: “Roger christened this tour Moving On. I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose.”
