Rockin’ The Colosseum: The Who

So, you want to see The Who live? You’re running out of time. In an April interview, frontman Roger Daltrey said the legendary rockers may never play live again after they finish their current tour, which features an exclusive Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace from July 29–August 11. They’ll be the first rock band to have a residency at The Colosseum since the venue opened in 2003.

Since releasing “I Can’t Explain” in 1965, the English group has been on a “Magic Bus” ride with a career spanning more than 50 years. One of the most influential bands of all time, The Who have sold over 100 million records, and seven of the group’s albums appeared on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2003. With a treasure trove of hits, the biggest challenge The Who will face in Las Vegas will be planning their incredible set list.
