After months of build up, The Who finally kick off their Quadrophenia tour tonight in Florida. The 37-date tour, the band’s first tour in four years, will see the band perform their 1973 rock opera in its entirety, along with a bonus encore of a handful of their biggest hits.

Roger Daltrey says he’s really looking forward to performing Quadrophenia. He said the last time they went on tour, they performed bits of just about everything BUT Quadrophenia adding it’s been about 16 years since they’ve done this music in concert.

In addition to Townshend and Daltrey, the Who’s show will feature longtime sidemen Zak Starkey on drums, Pino Palladino on bass, Townshend’s younger brother Simon Townshend on guitar and backing vocals, along with Quadrophenia session pianist Chris Stainton, Loren Gold on keyboards and backing vocals, and Daltrey solo sideman Frank Simes, who’ll serve as the musical director while contributing keyboards and backing vocals.

The tour has three shows in two cities within driving distance:

November 27 – Minneapolis, MN – Target Center
November 29, 30 – Rosemont, IL – Allstate Arena
