The Who have postponed their 11-date US tour due to COVID-19. The band’s Moving On! tour was due to start on 21 April in Hollywood, Florida, and end with a six night residency at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Who made the announcement on their website, saying the April and May stops on their tour are “proactively being rescheduled to the fall/autumn out of an abundance of caution.”
“As soon as we have the dates finalised we’ll share the updated schedule, and all tickets will be honoured accordingly. Thank you for your understanding”, the band said. “Both Pete and Roger – and the rest of The Who band – cannot wait to get out there and be with you all and share in some great music. Long live rock.”
This is the latest in a string of coronavirus-related postponements the band have had to announce this year. Earlier, they decided to postpone a tour of the UK and Ireland that was to kick off in Manchester on 16 March. In addition, the band have also had to call off performances at the Royal Albert Hall’s Teenage Cancer Trust shows, and the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
