Tickets are currently on sale at http://www.thewho.com . THE WHO HITS 50! tour is being presented by AEG Live. collection. Released October 27 on Geffen/Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), this definitive collection of THE WHOs greatest tracks–from their very first recordings as The High Numbers right up to the present day with the brand new track Be Lucky–is being released to coincide with the bands 50th anniversary tour. THE WHO have sold over 100 million records since forming in 1964; they brought together four different personalities and in effect produced a musical hurricane. Each of them was a pioneer. Wildman drummer Keith Moon beat his kit with a chaotic elegance; stoic bassist John Entwistle held down the center with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist; raging intellectual Pete Townshend punctuated the epic universality of his songs with the windmill slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; and Roger Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly virile macho swagger. They exploded conventional rhythm and blues structures, challenged pop music conventions, and redefined what was possible on stage, in the recording studio, and on vinyl. As they enter their 50th year, the band is still going strong, winning rave reviews for their performances of QUADROPHENIA in 2013. THE WHOs 2015 North American tour dates are as follows:

The battle for Soho’s soul: How Londoners are fighting development in the capital
Its such a beautiful venue, and inside you just feel like youve gone back in time. Youll never get that again. The funeral march for Madame Jojo’s passes some of Soho’s businesses Image: Mashable / Tim Chester Jojos eclecticism and welcoming approach was unique even among central London haunts, which has made its loss all the more poignant for a number of locals especially as it’s at the hands of property developers with plans to clean up the area. Soho Estates , which is run by Paul Raymonds granddaughter Fawn James, wants to develop the Walkers Court area of Soho around Jojo’s, a famously seedy alleyway riddled with sex shops and clubs. The venue’s license issues have come at an opportune time for the developers, who are planning to add retail units, a theatre, and a new headquarters for the company. A map showing the planned regeneration of Soho Image: Mashable / Tim Chester Soho Estates told me that they are aiming to honour the areas history and that the proposed developments would include “a re-incarnation of Madame Jojo’s.” They said: Soho Estates approach to Soho is to carry out careful restoration and refurbishment projects and redevelopment in keeping with the character and history of the area.

THE WHO Hits 50! Tour Launches To Rave Reviews; Tour Launch Video Includes Behind The Scenes Look At First Shows – LA.com (Los Angeles, CA)
Fast-forward to 2014; after 55 years and more than 60 records, rock n rolls original wild child has gifted us with a new 11-track release. A fine follow-up to 2006s aptly titled Last Man Standing and 2010s Mean Old Man, Rock & Roll Time is all Killer, no filler. This latest gem also boasts a host of all-star contributions from loyal Lewis acolytes Robbie Robertson, Neil Young, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Nils Lofgren, and Kris Kristofferson, among others. It seems appropriate, considering he is one of the last living links to the source. The whole album rocks, especially the Kristofferson-penned title track, which Lewis ends with a wry chuckle, and the cover of the great Chuck Berrys Little Queenie, which Jerry Lee kills while Richards lays down the groove.
