The Who’s newly released self-titled album scored a US Top 5. 

Reported by Billboard, the Who project recently entered the Billboard 200 peaking at No. 2 during its opening week sales of 89,000 copies.

The current achievement of the UK Rock Legends ties their highest chart-topper, such as the 1973’s “Quadrophenia” and 1978’s “Who Are You.”

The opening track is the lead single, “Ball And Chain,” and the newly released album is the first the Who’s studio effort since 2006’s “Endless Wire,” debuting and peaked at No. 7 on the US Chart. 

The Who also announced additional dates for their US live dates as part of their Moving On! tour in 2020.

The tour will start in spring, which will see Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend joined by the local symphony orchestras in Hollywood, FL on April 21 – including a May residency at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV and, the band’s first appearance in the Cincinnati, OH area since the incident on December 3, 1979, where 11 lives tragically lost as the crowd waited to get into the concert.
