The Who’s Pete Townshend Wouldn’t Tour Without New Material

Rock & Roll Hall of Famers The Who are set to kick off a 29-date North American tour in Michigan in May, although guitarist Pete Townshend has revealed he only agreed to go on the road if the iconic band had new material. “I said I was not going to sign any contracts unless we have new material,” Townshend told Rolling Stone. “This has nothing to do with wanting a hit album. It has nothing to do with the fact that the Who need a new album. It’s purely personal. It’s about my pride, my sense of self-worth and self-dignity as a writer.” Townshend hopes frontman Roger Daltrey will record vocals for fifteen demos he painstakingly crafted last year in order to release the new album later this year. The Who have yet to release dates for their upcoming tour, although the first leg is expected to include shows in East Coast cities including New York and Chicago.
