The Who to rock Harveys Outdoor Arena at Tahoe’s South Shore on Aug. 16

You don’t need to be a huge fan of classic rock to have heard of The Who.

Originally formed in the 1960s, the English band continues to top lists of all-time great rockers, and on Wednesday, Aug. 16, the group will take the stage at Harveys Outdoor Arena for the next installment of the 2017 Lake Tahoe Summer Concert Series.

“Today, despite the deaths of Keith Moon and John Entwistle, The Who remain[s] a potent force on the rock music scene,” states the band’s Facebook biography.

Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/principal songwriter Pete Townshend will rock Stateline beginning at 8 p.m., continuing the duo’s current tour — a lifestyle that is not unknown to the rockers.

“The Who made their reputation on the live stage. From turning professional in 1964 up to the end of 1966 they were pretty much permanently on the road, snatching recording time whenever the opportunity arose.

“In these years alone they played more gigs than Led Zeppelin, for example, did in their entire career,” states the band’s website.
