The Who have sold over 100 million records since forming in 1964. They brought together four different personalities and produced a musical hurricane. Each of them was a pioneer. Wildman drummer Keith Moon beat his kit with a chaotic elegance; stoic bassist John Entwistle held down the center with the melodic virtuosity of a solo guitarist; raging intellectual Pete Townshend punctuated the epic universality of his songs with the windmill slamming of his fingers across his guitar strings; and Roger Daltrey roared above it all with an impossibly macho swagger. They exploded conventional Rhythm and Blues structures, challenged Pop music conventions and redefined what was possible on stage in the recording studio and on vinyl. Now into their 53rd year, the band is still going strong and winning rave reviews.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won "Casino of The Year" at the Country Music Awards in 2008 and 2010 and in 2013, was voted "Arena Of The Year" at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas. Mohegan Sun Arena was also ranked among the top 10 arena venues in the nation for 2014, regardless of size. In 2015, Mohegan Sun took home the IEBA award for "Casino of the Year." Mohegan Sun also won "Casino of the Year" in two categories at the 2013 and 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards. For more information on concerts and other great events, visit Mohegan Sun.
