The Who to Wrap Up Quadrophenia Tour with Special London Charity Concert

Rick Diamond/Getty Images for The WhoThe Who has scheduled a special benefit concert that will close out the upcoming European leg of the band's Quadrophenia and More Tour.  The show, which will raise funds for the group's Double O charity, will take place July 8 at London's Wembley Arena.

The British rock legends founded the Double O charity in 1976.  The organization provides support to various philanthropic groups, including ones that help people dealing with drug and alcohol addiction, sexual abuse and domestic violence.

The Who's European trek begins June 8 at the O2 Arena in Dublin, Ireland.

In other Who-related news, a revamped version of the Tony-winning musical based on the group's classic 1969 rock opera Tommy is scheduled to open next month at the Avon Theatre in Stratford, Canada.  The stage production, created by Pete Townshend and director Des McAnuff, is scheduled to run from May 4 through October 19.  The play was updated using new technology and stagecraft innovations.
