The Who – Best Reunion Tours

Seven years after their 1982 ‘Farewell Tour’ seemed to spell the end of one of rock’s biggest bands, the Who reunited in 1989 to the delight of their fans.

There were some big changes to the band’s live show. Drummer Kenny Jones, who took over for deceased founding member Keith Moon in 1979, was himself replaced by Simon Phillips. More dramatically, Pete Townshend‘s battle with tinnitus forced him to perform on acoustic guitar for much of the shows. To help fill in the sound the group employed a dozen backing musicians, including a full horn section.
