The Who To Play Hyde Park Next Summer

The Who

Support will include Paul Weller, Kaiser Chiefs and Johnny Marr

The Who have confirmed they'll play a huge show at Hyde Park next summer, the first time they've headlined the venue since 1996.

Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend confirmed the 26 June 2015 show with a video message that saw them thank the Queen for permission to play in the royal park.

"It's a good gig, you draw from all over the country but a London crowd is always a good crowd," said Pete. The nine date Who Hits 50 tour covers music from the span of the band's back catalogue.

Support on the day will come from Paul Weller, Johnny Marr and the Kaiser Chiefs.

Tickets go on sale Thursday (20th November) at 9am.
