Legendary English rockers The Who are preparing for their first North American tour in four years, which will feature opening support by Vintage Trouble on the first leg.

The multi-platinum-selling band, helmed by founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, begins the first round of shows Nov. 1 in Sunrise, FL. Since last check, a second night has been added in Chicago (11/29-11/30), and Los Angeles-based Vintage Trouble has been confirmed as handling opening duties for the first leg.

After the New Year, the iconic outfit will kick off the tour's second pass, which begins Jan. 28 in Anaheim, CA, and extends through a Feb. 26 performance in Providence, RI. Along with other well-known hit songs, the set will include The Who's award-winning 1973 album, "Quadrophenia," in its entirety. Daltrey and Townshend received the Classic Album Award for the album from the Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards in London last year.
