The Who Ready Quadrophenia Tour, Announce Vintage Trouble as Opening Act for First Leg

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are ramping up to hit the road as The Who once again this fall. The legendary British rock band will be embarking on an arena tour and performing their classic 1973 concept album Quadrophenia.


The tour will be the first time Pete and Rog have brought The Who stateside in four years and their opening act for the first leg of the tour will be none other than LA’s Vintage Trouble.



GSTV first got wind of Vintage Trouble a couple of years ago when we caught them burning it up at a small club in Santa Monica. Since that time, the soul-tinged rock outfit has been exploding on stages big and small, across the UK, the US and Europe. They’ve garnered a huge following in England and are currently winning fans in North America with their high profile opening slot on Joss Stone’s current tour.


Nonetheless, opening for the almighty Who is an exciting prospect for any band.


“Can you believe it?” said VT drummer Richard Danielson, speaking to GSTV. “Can’t wait to get into this one!”


The Quadrophenia tour kicks off on November 1 in Sunrise, FL. Vintage Trouble will be on tour with The Who from then until December 9, when the tour breaks for the holidays.


The second North American leg of the tour will commence on January 28. In addition to Townshend and Daltrey on guitar and vocals, The Who’s lineup will feature Zak Starkey on drums, Pino Paladino on bass, and Pete’s younger brother Simon Townshend on guitar and background vocals.


Pete Townshend is also set to release his autobiography Who I Am on October 1.
