After four years The Who are going back on tour this fall, performing their 1973 album Quadrophenia, as well as other classic Who hits. The first part of the 36-date tour begins on November 1 at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, FL, and runs until December 9, when the band play the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. It picks back up on January 28, 2013, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA, and ends on February 26 at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, RI. The 2012/13 North American Tour is the band's first full scale outing since the 2006-2007 Tour that also saw the band release Endless Wire, their first album in 28 years.

There is also good news for anybody still possessing a ticket to the 1979 Providence, RI, concert that was canceled. This tour is the first time The Who is playing in the city since then. According to the Washington Times, the Dunkin Donuts Center is going to be honoring any of those tickets for the upcoming show. While it's not unusual for a ticket to be honored for a postponed show, once a concert is outright canceled, that's usually (if not always) the end of the ticket's value, other than as a memento. Honoring a ticket 33 years later is pretty much unheard of, but they're doing it. So, if you still have one of those old tickets, you're in luck.
