News of the tour follows the band performing a medley of songs from The Who‘s rock opera Tommy earlier this year.

They posted a video in June, which you can watch below, featuring snippets of the tracks ‘Pinball Wizard’, ‘There’s A Doctor’ and ‘Go To The Mirror’.

“Who better to deliver a tribute to the greatest rock opera of all times? Who? The D! That’s Who!! We’ve been working on this medley for 20 years. It’s finally ready to be unleashed. Crank it. It’s a humdinger. Enjoy,” the duo said in statement at the time.


The clip sees Gass playing an actual pinball machine during ‘Pinball Wizard’ while Black sings the cover.

The band released a 7 inch vinyl version of the medley, with all proceeds going to Everytown For Gun Safety, an organisation that touts the collective goals of finding ways to make communities safer by introducing solutions to help end gun violence.
