‘The Who’ Announces Caesars Palace Residency

The Who have announced a six-show Las Vegas residency.

The British rockers – led by 71-year-old guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend, and 73-year-old singer Roger Daltrey – took to Facebook late on Monday (13.03.17) to announce they are set to take to the stage at the famous Caesars Palace for a six-show residency which kicks off on July 29.

Posting on the social media site, the ‘Baba O’Riley’ hitmakers said: “Vegas! We’re coming to rock The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with a six-show residency July 29 – Aug 11. Tickets go on-sale Fri at 12pm. (sic)”

 Although the residency is fairly short, The Guardian newspaper reports the six shows were originally described in a statement as a “first run”, meaning extra dates could be on the horizon.

The ‘My Generation’ rockers will become the first ever rock band to perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace music venue since it opened its doors in 2003, and will join the likes of Mariah Carey, Sir Rod Stewart, Sir Elton John, and Celine Dion, who have all performed residencies in the past.
