The Who tour set to be 'quieter'

Monday, 12th Jul 2010
As The Who prepare for a world tour next year fans may be relieved to hear that attending a show will not leave them with ringing ears.

Roger Daltrey has admitted that the new tour will be quieter than in previous years as they need to take measures to protect Pete Townshend's hearing.

It was recently revealed that the guitarist was having trouble with tinnitus, leaving many to fear that the band's touring days were behind them.

However, Daltrey stated that it can be managed as long as they use different volumes on stage - and Townsend does not turn the volume up.

"Pete, being the addictive character he is, if he gets carried away he turns his volume up to the old levels and that's when it causes trouble," the vocalist said.

Daltrey recently performed a gig in Kansas City, showcasing a variety of rarities from the band and a medley of Johnny Cash tracks.
