Subscribe The Who

The Who have announced their UK and Ireland arena tour dates, in which they will play their album 'Quadrophenia'.

The 'My Generation' rockers are set to play ten dates across June - starting in Dublin and finishing in Liverpool - and will perform their iconic 1973 record in its entirety, along with a selection of their classic tracks.

Their UK dates will see original members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey joined by Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar/backing vocals), John Corey (keyboards), Loren Gold (keyboards/backing vocals) and Frank Simes (musical director, keyboards/backing vocals).

The band are to start the second leg of their US 'Quadrophenia and More' tour in Anaheim, California, later today (28.01.13).

Their show, directed by Roger, includes a full performance of the record accompanied by ''powerful imagery projected on massive screens'', the press release reads.

It is hoped the imagery and pictures will ''support, complement and propel the musical content'' of the band's music by telling the story of their colourful history.

'Quadrophenia' was The Who's sixth studio album and was later made into a 1979 film starring Sting, Phil Davis and Toyah Willcox.

The Who UK and Ireland tour dates are:

June 8 - Dublin, The O2

June 10 - Belfast, Odyssey

June 12 - Glasgow, SECC

June 15 - London, The O2

June 18 - Sheffield, Motorpoint Arena

June 20 - Newcastle, Metro Arena

June 23 - Manchester Arena
