CANCELLATION NOTICE: Due to illness The Who has had to postpone the final December 2014 shows of their sell out 'The Who Hits 50' UK tour at The O2 arena. Re-scheduled to 22nd and 23rd March 2015. Tickets will be valid.

The long-established band originally formed in London as The High Numbers, performs its rock originals led by the two surviving members, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend who has said: "This is the beginning of the long goodbye". The show will be 'Hits, Picks, Mixes and Misses' says Pete Townshend with the band playing all the classic anthems - taken from albums Who's Next, Tommy, Quadrophenia and My Generation - as well as tackling deeper cuts from their 50-year back catalogue.

 

About The O2 Arena

The centrepiece of the redeveloped Millennium Dome is the O2 Arena, the first purpose-built music venue in London. With a capacity of 23,000, it offers the rather soulless Wembley Arena some serious competition. Big name acts such as The Rolling Stones, The Killers, Justin Timberlake, Girls Aloud and Tina Turner have performed on stage, with the likes of Beyonce, AC/DC, Kings of Leon and Britney Spears set to appear in 2009.
