Figured they would be the cheap seats alright but I think the Hits 50 tour had standing which will probably fall somewhere in the middle so depends on if this is all seated or not I reckon but hoping they will have standing and not be too expensive.

Highly unlikely there will be standing ,all the UK gigs are seated .

Great band live,they have a new album coming out and they will be joined on tour by an orchestra .

I saw this show in July, they did a one off gig with the orchestra at Wembley Stadium. I think I paid around GBP £100 and was right beside the stage but this is Ireland of course

Both they and the orchestra were on fire but the sound is like mud in the new Wembley.

Pete did say they were going to tour said show this year.

Good mix of all the hits, some newer material, Tommy and Quad.

Guess this rules them out for an EP appearance but Glasto 50 most definitely.

Love The Who since I was a lad in the 70s. But I just can't justify paying money to see a sex offender on stage.

Remember when they played Oxegen and James Brown was on after. What an epic night!!
Saw them in Marley Park the following year (i think) too... 19/20 year old me loved those gigs!! If they've still got it I'd go again.

Imagine using that excuse if you were just any old Joe Soap instead of a world famous rock star.

Top priced tickets for this seem to be only 95 euro ,thats way less than I expected .

I'd have tried to get a few floor seats in the presale this morning if I'd known that but I thought they'd be 150 .
Their tour this year in the US and London was a disaster sales wise ,prices were eye wateringly high ,I guess they have learnt their lesson.
