Feb. 7 (UPI) -- The Who are going on tour in 2022.

The British rock band shared plans Monday for The Who Hits Back, a new North American tour.


The first leg of the tour begins April 22 in Hollywood, Fla., and ends May 28 in Bethel, N.Y.

The Who will resume the tour Oct. 2 in Toronto, Canada, and bring the venture to a close Nov. 5 in Las Vegas.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. local time.

"Pete and I said we'd be back, but we didn't think we'd have to wait for two years for the privilege," frontman Roger Daltrey said in a statement. "This is making the chance to perform feel even more special this time around."

"So many livelihoods have been impacted due to Covid, so we are thrilled to get everyone back together -- the band, the crew and the fans. We're gearing up for a great show that hits back in the only way The Who know how. By giving it everything we got," he added.

Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend will be joined by guitarist Simon Townshend, keyboardists Loren Gold and Emily Marshall, bassist Jon Button, drummer Zak Starkey, backing vocalist Billy Nicholls, orchestra conductor Keith Kevenson, lead violinist Katie Jacoby and lead cellist Audrey Snyder.
