The Who just played a show last month at Madison Square Garden during the first leg of the band’s Moving On! Tour. Now, the British rock legends have announced that they’ll return to the famed New York City venue for another concert on September 1.
The newly announced performance will now serve as the kickoff date of the second leg of The Who’s 2019 North American trek, which is mapped out through an October 24 concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Tickets for the Madison Square Garden gig go on sale to the general public this Friday, June 21, at 10 a.m. local time via LiveNation.com. Members of The Who’s fan club will be able to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning this Wednesday, June 19, at 10 a.m. ET.
As with the first leg of the tour, the upcoming trek will feature The Who accompanied by a 48-piece orchestra at each venue. A variety of different artists will be opening for the band during the upcoming trek — including J. Geils Band singer Peter Wolf, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and Canadian indie-blues group Reignwolf — although a support act for the New York City show has yet to be revealed.
Meanwhile, The Who will be releasing its first new studio album since 2006’s Endless Wire this year, and everyone purchasing a ticket to a show on the band’s tour of the U.S. and Canada will receive a free copy of the record when it’s available. In addition, the group is donating $1 from every ticket sold to the Teen Cancer America charity.
