Watch Out For The Legendary Band’s Promotional Bus In Chicago, LA & NYC Streets
In celebration of their recently announced 2019 North American MOVING ON! Tour, The Who has launched a series of pop up Magic Buses straight from the 60s in Chicago, LA and NYC. And if you spot it, take a picture and post it on social media because by doing so, you can win a pair of tickets to one of the concerts.
The buses are inspired by The Who’s iconic song “Magic Bus” and compilation album, Magic Bus – The Who On Tour from 1968.
People in Los Angeles can see the double decker buses now through Feb. 10 in Santa Monica, Hollywood and downtown. A full map of the buses’ routes can be viewed here..

Produced by Live Nation, The Who’s North American MOVING ON! TOUR goes to 29 cities beginning in May. The kickoff date is May 7 in Grand Rapids, MI with the band wrapping up the first leg of the tour June 1 in Toronto, ON. The fall tour starts Sept. 6 in St. Paul, MN and concludes Oct. 23 in Edmonton, AB.
Tickets are on sale at LiveNation.com.
The Who will also be releasing their first album of new songs in thirteen years later this year. On stage, the line-up will be rounded out by familiar Who players featuring guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Zak Starkey, and complemented by some of the best orchestras in the U.S. and Canada.
The tour is their first return to the states since their 2017 Las Vegas residency. That same year they did a limited run of shows following 2016’s rescheduled leg of their acclaimed 50th anniversary celebration. The band also drew praise for their extended 2012-2013 North American run, a 36 city Quadrophenia tour with the band performing their 1973 rock opera in its entirety.
