This week The Who will begin their Moving On! tour, which includes a stop in the Bay Area to perform at the brand new Chase Center in San Francisco on Wednesday, October 9th.

To get everyone amped up for the upcoming tour, The Who posted a couple behind the scenes videos from their rehearsals on their YouTube page.

The videos were made by The Who’s keyboard technician, Brian Kehew. The first first video, as seen below, shows The Who practicing “The Punk and the Godfather,” “5:15” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”

The second video below shows conductor Keith Levenson leading an orchestra (that will go on tour with the band to play select songs) through a few more songs, including “Love Reign O’er Me,” “Baba O’Riley” and the “Helpless Dancer” which was the theme from “The Rock.”

Brian Kehew also hinted in a blog post that “Eminence Front” and “Behind Blue Eyes” will be performed.

Recently, Roger Daltrey talked about the upcoming tour and said the overall presentation will be scaled back, with the video cameras focusing more on the musicians rather than the “bouncing pinballs, spinning cards, swimming sharks or ’60s miniskirts” seen during past tours.

Roger Daltrey also said in regards to the stage, will include “some elegant things to bring out moods, and it’s beyond what this band has had in the past. It will look cooler and more interesting visually, without losing exactly what is good about the band.”
