The Who spark retirement rumors with tour

The Who star Roger Daltrey has hinted the band’s upcoming 50th anniversary tour will be their last.

The rock legends will hit the road in Britain in the autumn for a series of special shows to mark their five decades in the music industry, and frontman Daltrey has sparked retirement rumors by describing the trek as “the beginning of the long goodbye.”

The singer made the comment in a post on the band’s website, while his bandmate Pete Townshend adds, “Trying to stay young. Not wearing socks. Growing a great big woodcutter’s beard. Might even wear a check shirt on stage and get a tattoo of a Union Jack. Always a fashion victim. But under no illusions. We are what we are, and extremely good at it, but we’re lucky to be alive and still touring. If I had enough hairs to split I would say that for 13 years since 1964 The Who didn’t really exist, so we are really only 37.”

The band’s tour kicks off in Dublin, Ireland in November and concludes in London in December.
