Legendary rock band The Who has announced a UK tour which will see the band performing with a full orchestra for 2 nights at the castle this summer. The shows are the band’s first in the Scottish capital in over 40 years.
The Who wound up their tour of the US in November last year having wowed audiences in over 30 cities, with media and fans agreeing that the band were as good as, if not better, than ever and that the orchestral arrangements, most of which were done by the legendary David Campbell, brought a new depth and excitement to Pete Townshend’s music.
Performing with The Who and an orchestra had been a long-held ambition for singer Roger Daltrey.
He said: “Having not toured the UK for six years, it’s great that at this time of our careers, we have the chance to go to places that are not on the usual touring map Edinburgh Castle and Derby, as well as the other cities across the country that we haven’t been to for decades, will make this very special for me.
“This opportunity will give our UK Who fans the chance to hear our current show, which, with the addition of an orchestra, takes our music to new heights.”
Townshend added: “Roger initially christened this tour with an orchestra ‘Moving On!’ I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, and classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose.
