Hire The Who:
The Who are an English rock band formed in London as The Detours in 1962. Their classic lineup (1964–1978) consisted of lead vocalist Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend, bassist John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. They are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century and have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
They are cited as an influence by many hard rock, punk, power pop and mod bands.
Townshend considered himself less technical than guitarists, such as Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, and wanted to stand out visually instead. His playing style evolved from the banjo, favoring down strokes and using a combination of the plectrum and fingerpicking.

Their appearances at Monterey and Woodstock helped give them a reputation as one of the greatest live rock acts and they have been credited with originating the “rock opera”.
The group’s contributions to rock include the power chord, windmill strum and the use of non-musical instrument noise such as feedback.
The Who have received many awards and accolades from the music industry for their recordings and their influence. They received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Phonographic Industry in 1988, and from the Grammy Foundation in 2001.
The band were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 where their display describes them as “prime contenders, in the minds of many, for the title of World’s Greatest Rock Band”, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE THE WHO?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire THE WHO for an event?)
(i.e., what is THE WHO booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for THE WHO, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
