Imelda May has been added to the line-up for The Who’s huge summer gig at Wembley Stadium.
The Irish singer-songwriter who is known for tracks such as Mayhem and It’s Good to Be Alive will join Kaiser Chiefs and Eddie Vedder as special guests for the iconic rockers.
The Who’s Moving On! show at Wembley Stadium will see Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey joined by symphonic accompaniment on Saturday 6 July for a huge one-off show.
The band are currently gearing up to release their first album of new songs in 13 years. On stage, the line-up will be rounded out by familiar Who players featuring guitarist and backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey.
Commenting on what Who fans can expect from the Moving On! tour, Pete Townshend said: “Roger christened this tour Moving On! I love it. It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose.”
Roger Daltrey added: “Be aware Who fans! Just because it’s The Who with an orchestra, in no way will it compromise the way Pete and I deliver our music. This will be full throttle Who with horns and bells on.”
The Who are one of the top three greatest rock legacies in music history. Emerging in the mid 1960s, their brash style and poignant storytelling garnered them one of music’s most passionate followings and the band was eventually inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
Having sold more than 100 million records worldwide, with 17 Top Ten albums – including the 1969 ground-breaking rock opera Tommy – their anthemic back catalogue of hits includes I Can’t Explain, The Kids Are Alright, My Generation, Baba O’Riley, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Pinball Wizard, Who Are You and You Better You Bet.
The Moving On! tour will give fans the opportunity to hear plenty of these classic tracks live once again, alongside what promises to be incredible new music from the new album.
