Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

The legendary English rock band The Who will bring their "The Who Hits 50!" tour to Duluth, Ga., April 23 at The Arena at Gwinnett Center.

The tour—presented by AEG Live—will also include special guests and 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.

"This is the beginning of the long goodbye," said Roger Daltrey of the upcoming tour.

The band's tour kicked off in Glasgow, Scotland on Nov. 30 with a set list that included: "Substitute," "The Seeker," "Join Together," "Squeeze Box," and "Magic Bus," along with "The Kids Are Alright," "I Can See For Miles," "Who Are You," "Behind Blue Eyes," "You Better You Bet," "Baba O'Riley," "Won't Get Fooled Again," and "Pinball Wizard."

"Trying to stay young. Not wearing socks. Growing a great big Woodcutter's beard. Might even wear a check shirt on stage and get a tattoo of a Union Jack," Pete Townshend said in a statement. "Always a fashion victim. But under no illusions. We are what we are, and extremely good at it, but we're lucky to be alive and still touring."

The Who have sold more than 100 million records since forming in 1964.
