Daltry, Townsend, The Who coming to Cincinnati

The Who Hits Back Tour at new TQL Stadium May 15

CINCINNATI, Ohio (WTVQ/Press Release) – Legendary rock band The Who have announced a new tour for 2022, THE WHO HITS BACK!, and the new TQL Stadium in Cincinnati is one of the first stops.

The iconic band’s upcoming North American trek promises to be another rock n’ roll knockout, bringing singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend back to U.S. venues two years after their acclaimed MOVING ON! Tour, which wowed audiences with a series of sold-out dates. THE WHO HITS BACK! Tour will again share the stage with some of the finest orchestras in the U.S. and Canada. The tour will make a stop in Cincinnati on Sunday, May 15 and be the first concert at the new TQL Stadium.

The performance will have added historical significance as it will be the first time the band will be playing in the city since eleven lives were tragically lost as the concert crowd waited to get into The Who’s concert on December 3, 1979. The Who will make a donation from the concert to the P.E.M. Memorial, the organization that was founded to honor friends and classmates that lost their lives at the concert, providing college scholarships for students at Finneytown High School.
