TOUR DIARY – November 21st, 2012


I have been spreading rumours that Rachel and I would be premiering our orchestral version of Quadrophenia at the Royal Albert Hall Teenage Cancer concert in March 2013. Now we have decided that because the Who tour extends into March and probably beyond into April in the UK that it would be too much for me personally. Rachel’s score sounds wonderful, and will certainly be premiered some time in 2013 or 2014. More on this later.


Meanwhile The Who are now in Canada. Montreal was great. Ottawa tonight. Looking forward to it.

Hiya Pete, just finished listening to “Who I am”, was a real treat to hear you tell your life story in your own voice, loved it, and love you.

Hi Pete-
7.5 hours ’til your show here in Minneapolis and it’s that same old feeling…can barely stand waiting. My 9th Who show in 5 different decades. The fact that it’s Quadrophenia only ups the ante.

Recently finished your autobiography; loved it of course. Hell, I’ll stop gushing here and just give you the huge Thank You Pete for changing my life and leading me down the path…I’m One. See you tonight!

Hi Pete, just wanted to say, that I purchased your book WHO I AM, and am now learning about the true scholar and genius known as Mr. Peter Townsend……

THE WHO What can one say that hasn’t been already noted in the bands 40+ year history of entertaining probably billions of fans…. I have been fortunate to have seen at least 15 Who concerts in the past, wow almost 50 years. My twin daughters now age 40, saw the Who at MSG in NYC when they were 4 1/2 years old. I am embarassed to say that they did fall asleep during the second half of the show!!!! Which only goes to show aside being raised on classic rock, great music is like a lullabye to the young. My children, twin daughters now age 40 and married with children of their own along with my son who is 34 and has children of his own as well had the fortunate experience of being exposed to great rock & roll of the 60′s; even though they were all born in the 1970′s and remembering and reminiscing all the great and amazing concerts they have attended as children and now as adults as well.
