The Who -- or what’s left of them – will bring their 1973 double-album “Quadrophenia” to the stage once again, founding members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey announced Wednesday.

The 36-date tour includes a Nov. 29 date at the Allstate Arena. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. July 27 via Ticketmaster.

The touring lineup will include Townshend and Daltrey, who have continued to tour under The Who banner even though founding drummer Keith Moon died in 1978 and bassist John Entwistle in 2002. The rest of the band includes Zak Starkey (drums), Pino Palladino (bass), Simon Townshend (guitar) and three keyboardists: Chris Stainton, Loren Gold and Frank Simes.

“Quadrophenia” will be performed front to back, on the heels of a box set released last year documenting the making of the classic teen-angst song cycle. A handful of greatest hits will bring the show to a close, Townshend said.

In addition, the movie “The Who: Quadrophenia-Can You See the Real Me?” will be screened nationwide next Tuesday, including several Chicago theaters. Details can be found at fathomevents.com.
