The Who Play Liberty Stadium

The Who have announced that they will be the first band to play the Liberty
Stadium in Swansea as part of their European tour this summer. The group
are, as previously reported, set for an appearance at Glastonbury, and will
also play dates in Liverpool and Hull. Speaking on Thursday, frontman Roger
Daltrey said that their set at the stadium would last two hours and feature
songs spanning their career.

Andrew Davies, manager of the Liberty stadium, which opened back in 2005,
said: “This is a major coup for us and Swansea. We are delighted to have
such an iconic band play and it is fantastic that we have been chosen to be
part of their European Tour. It was always part of the original business
plan to host regular concerts in the summer months. The Who will set the bar
for Liberty Stadium as a quality music venue, raising the profile of both
the venue and the city to UK music fans.”

Tickets go on sale in the next week or so.
