On April 7, The Who will release a collectible blue vinyl 7" of their latest classic ‘Be Lucky’ from ‘The Who Hits 50!’ album backed with the band’s very first single from 1965 ‘I Can’t Explain.’
‘Be Lucky’ is The Who’s first new material in eight years and in keeping with their ongoing support for Teenage Cancer charities, the band have donated their royalties from the song to Teen Cancer America, a charity founded in 2011 by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend.
The Who will also bring “THE WHO HITS 50!” tour to North America this year. “THE WHO HITS 50!” tour will kick off its spring run on April 15 in Tampa, FL and will include 21 stops throughout the east before wrapping on May 30 in Forest Hills, NY. The fall leg will launch September 14 in San Diego, CA and begin with West Coast dates throughout the U.S. and across Canada before concluding November 4 in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets are on sale now; more information can be found at thewho.com/tour. In addition, $1 from each ticket sold on “THE WHO HITS 50!” North American tour will benefit Teen Cancer America.
