The Who are one of the greatest rock bands of all time and are well known for their energetic and electrifying live concerts. Find out what to expect at The Who's live show and how you can be at their upcoming performances.

British rock band The Who were formed in London in 1964 and are considered to be one of the greatest and most influential bands of all time. For more information on the illustrious history of The Who, check out our blog.

The band gained fame for their energetic live performances and hit songs such as 'My Generation', 'Baba O'Riley', and 'Won't Get Fooled Again'.

Throughout their career, The Who have been known for their dynamic and high-energy live shows. Townshend is famous for his windmill-style guitar playing, and Daltrey's powerful vocals often include his signature 'mic-swinging' move.

In addition to their musical talents, The Who's live shows often include elaborate stage setups and theatrical elements. Townshend's rock operas, such as 'Tommy' and 'Quadrophenia', were often performed in their entirety during concerts.

The band has also been known to destroy their instruments at the end of shows, cementing their reputation as one of the most explosive and unpredictable live acts in rock music history.

Today, the band still performs live, now with Roger Daltrey, the voice of The Who, and Pete Townshend as the remaining original members. Fans can expect to hear classic hits, as well as some new material, and an energetic and dynamic performance.

The band continues to draw large crowds and maintain a strong fanbase, and a Who concert is considered a must-see for any rock music enthusiast.

The band's use of power chords and complex time signatures in songs like ‘My Generation’ have been a major impact on punk rock and alternative rock.

The Who have a huge catalogue of iconic albums to their name,  including ‘My Generation’ (1965), ‘Tommy’ (1969), ‘Who's Next’ (1971) and ‘Quadrophenia’ (1973). For our top 3 The Who albums, check out our blog.
