Yesterday’s Slumgullion noted that Simon Townshend will be doing a solo show at Martyrs’ on Lincoln Avenue on May 12th, the day before he’ll be performing with his brother Pete and The Who at the Allstate Arena. According to a recent issue of Rolling Stone (the one with Ringo on the cover) this 50th Anniversary Who Tour will include rarely performed songs from the band’s early days.
