The Who kicked off its latest North American leg last night (January 28th) in Anaheim, California, and have just announced a 12-city European tour for June and July. The band's overseas Quadrophenia & More dates begin on June 8th in Dublin, Ireland and run through July 5th in Amsterdam. Along the way, they'll hit Belfast, Northern Ireland; Glasgow, Scotland; Cardiff, Wales; Paris, France; and six British stops in London, Sheffield, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, and Liverpool.

Although Quadrophenia was Pete Townshend's complete creation, the spirit of each member of the Who played a specific role in the emotional makeup of the story's hero, "Jimmy": "What I'm most proud of, is the fact that, y'know, in the execution of the idea that, y'know, that each member of the band would offer something to this kid. Whether it was still working for him was another story; 'cause I think the story of Jimmy in Quadrophenia is that nothing seems to work for him anymore -- except sitting in the rain and praying."
