The Who to play at 2009 Australian Grand Prix

The Who to play at 2009 Australian Grand Prix

Legendary British rock band The Who will perform a spectacular concert at the 2009 Australian Grand Prix, organisers have announced. It follows this year’s show by Kiss at Albert Park.

In their only Melbourne tour date, The Who, who have sold over 100 million albums and won every major award including Grammies, Brit Awards and Lifetime Achievement honours, will perform hits including ‘Who Are You’, ‘Substitute’, ‘My Generation’, ‘Pinball Wizard’ and ‘You Better You Bet’.

Lead singer Roger Daltrey, 64, and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend, 63 (the last two surviving members of the original foursome), will be joined on stage by long-time members Simon Townshend (guitar), Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass) and John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick (keys).

“We can’t wait to get there,” said Daltrey. “We hope a load of you turn out to see us. It’s a bloody long way to go, but you’re worth coming to.”

“This is a special occasion for us to come and be with you guys at the time of the Grand Prix,” added Townshend. “KISS did it last year and we hear they played to big crowds, but we hope to see an even bigger crowd when we hit Melbourne in March.”

Anyone with a valid ticket to the Australian Grand Prix on Sunday, 29 March will be able to see The Who concert at no extra cost.
