The Who’s ‘Moving On!’ Tour is Rolling into Grand Rapids

A hall-of-fame rock band from the British Invasion is incoming once again — this time to Grand Rapids.

The Who — including singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend from the classic lineup — is descending upon Van Andel Arena during its 29-city “Moving On!” tour across North America.

The performance will be on May 7 at 7:30 p.m., and tickets will go on sale on Jan. 18 at 10 a.m.

“Be aware Who fans!” Daltrey said. “Just because it’s The Who with an orchestra, in no way will it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music. This will be full-throttle Who — with horns and bells on.”

The band will also be releasing its first album of new songs in 13 years later this year.

Every pair of tickets purchased online includes a redeemable code for a CD copy of the album, and $1 from each ticket sold will benefit Teen Cancer America.

Other members of The Who on the tour are guitarist and backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey.
