Pete Townshend says that the Who's upcoming "Moving On!" tour might provide the band with a new and interesting lease on life. As with Roger Daltrey's recent solo tour, the Who will play in each city with a local orchestra, the dynamics of which Townshend thinks will only strengthen how the band plays — as well as how Daltrey's sings: ["Roger has said that he doesn't know how much longer he can sing the way he's singing. He's singing incredibly well and has been for the last five or six years. I mean, better than ever, I think. But he has said he doesn't know how long he can go on doing that — and maybe, doing this orchestral-style tour, because the dynamic is so much wider — in other words, he doesn't have to battle with a noisy rock band in order to get himself heard, and to hear himself. It might open up some avenues for us, I don't know."] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . I don't know)
When pressed as to what fans can expect to hear from the band this time out, Townshend revealed: ["I think the plan we've got is to do some of Tommy, some of Quadrophenia, and some of the other stuff. So, it'll be a tripartite show. That, I really like the feeling of, it has a nice feeling to it. I don't know what the order would be."] SOUNDCUE (:13 OC: . . . order would be)
The Who are currently working on their first studio album since 2006's Endless Wire. No release date has been announced.
