Legendary rock band The Who have announced their return to Scotland with their tour bringing them to Edinburgh for the first time in more than 40 years.
The band have confirmed performances at Edinburgh Castle on July 8 and July 9.
Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend will be joined by a full orchestra.
They will perform hits from throughout the group’s nearly six decade career, including sections devoted to classic albums Tommy and Quadrophenia.
The 2023 UK shows include Edinburgh Castle, the band’s first show in the Scottish capital in more than four decades.
Dates in Hill, Debry, Bristol, Durham, St Helens and Brighton will see them joined by English reggae and pop band UB40.
It comes after The Who travelled around the US for their The Who Hits Back! tour.
Daltrey said: “Having not toured the UK for six years, it’s great that at this time of our careers we have the chance to go to places that are not on the usual touring map Edinburgh Castle and Derby, as well as the other cities across the country that we haven’t been to for decades, will make this very special for me.
“This opportunity will give our UK Who fans the chance to hear our current show, which, with the addition of an orchestra, takes our music to new heights.”
Townshend, whose brother Simon will join him on the tour, said: “Roger initially christened this tour with an orchestra Moving On. I love it.
“It is what both of us want to do. Move on, with new music, classic Who music, all performed in new and exciting ways. Taking risks, nothing to lose. I’m really looking forward to bringing this show to the UK.”
