NEW YORK, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- The Who Thursday announced a summer 2006 world tour that will include an extended North American trek -- its first in nearly four years.

"We plan to visit the USA, Europe, Japan, Australia and also South America," Who manager Bill Curbishley told RollingStone.com.

The "new" Who consists of Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend backed by bassist Pino Palladino, keyboardist John "Rabbit" Bundrick, drummer Zak Starkey and guitarist Simon Townshend, brother of Pete.

Starkey's touring commitments with Oasis and Palladino's commitment with the John Mayer Trio put The Who on the shelf during 2005.

The Who have been working on a new album, "Who2," for the past decade and are scheduled to go back into the studio in February.
