Let's Get Together. Before We Get Much Older.

Portland Oregon is among the North American destinations on the concert tour announced Thursday by The Who - the legendary band that has not been on a major tour for 25 years.

The Who -- Uncut, Uncensored, Unrepentant Tour gets under way at Philadelphia's Wachovia Center on Sept. 12 with confirmed dates at 17 arenas and amphitheatres across the U.S. and Canada with more U.S. shows to follow in November and December.

The Who will perform songs from their new mini rock opera, Wire & Glass, and material from their upcoming studio album. They will also be singing their greatest hits and songs that they haven't sung in public in a long time.

Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend, the surviving members of the band, will be joined by John "Rabbit" Bundrick on keyboards, Pino Palladino on bass, Zak Starkey, son of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, on drums, and Townshend's younger brother, Simon, on guitar and backing vocals.

The group's new album is tentatively titled Who 2 and is scheduled to be released on Oct. 23. It is the band's first album since 1982.
