The Who Wrap Tour Tonight at Wembley
The Who closes its 2012-2013 52-date Quadrophenia & More Tour tonight (July 8th), with a hometown gig at London’s Wembley Arena. The tour — which was primarily produced by Roger Daltrey — showcased the most advanced live production of the band’s crowning artistic achievement, the 1973 Pete Townshend-written rock opera Quadrophenia.
In addition to the official dates on the tour, the Who played two major charitable benefits at the end of its two respective North American legs; the star-studded 12-12-12 concert for Hurricane Sandy Relief at New York’s Madison Square Garden, and the February 28th Who Cares benefit concert in New York City with Elvis Costello & The Imposters. The concert, held at Manhattan’s Theater at Madison Square Garden, raised over $1.6 million for the Teen Cancer America Unit at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
