Monty Python is doing a similar thing. I guess 2014 is the year of "The Gett'em Before They Go Tour".

The Rolling Stones will probably announce their 2025 schedule soon, however.

I still remember the episode of the Simpsons (from 1995 apparently) where they show Lisa in college and there's a poster in her dorm for the Rolling Stones' "Steel Wheelchair Tour 2010"

I don't know if I can bring myself to see The Who again. I kinda think they ended when John died. I saw the 2002 tour only because I had my tickets before The Ox passed. It was a decent show, but still wasn't quite right. And Endless Wire......where do I begin ? It was about as much as a WHO album as Kenny Jones should have been their drummer after Moonie passed. I think I listened to it twice and then filed it away to be forgotten.

All true for me too. The songs just don't sound right without Entwistle. Still, I might go to this one last show.

I saw them in November of 2012 on the Quadraphenia tour and it was one of the best concertgoing descisions I've made.

All true for me too. The songs just don't sound right without Entwistle. Still, I might go to this one last show.

Let's not forget Keith Moon!

Sorry, read it too fast. But I think it would be nearly impossible to replace Moon. The later stuff after Moon just doesn't have the kick that Moon gave the band...

Moonie could never truly be replaced, but Zak Starkey is about as close to Keith as you're ever going to see. (at least on stage) I've seen Zak live a few times, and the guy is amazing.
