LIVERPOOL, England, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- The Who are returning to Liverpool, England's Summer Pops with native grandson Zak Starkey behind the drums, it was reported Friday.

Starkey is the son of Liverpool and Beatles' legend Ringo Starr.

Who frontman Roger Daltrey told the Liverpool Echo he and Pete Townshend "can't wait" to return to Liverpool after a 40 year absence.

"Liverpool has such a great musical history. I can't believe it's been almost four decades since we played there," Daltrey said. "We're really looking forward to the show."

Tickets go on sale next Friday for the July 5 and 6 concerts at the 4,000-seat arena.
