All you need to know for when the Who visit Edinburgh Castle this weekend

The Who are performing at Edinburgh Castle this weekend, marking the first time they’ve played Scotland’s capital in 40 years. Pete Townshend and the gang will dig into the rock legends’ near 60-year discography with a full orchestra at the Castle Esplanade.

Speaking on the tour, singer Roger Daltrey said: “Having not toured the UK for six years, it’s great that at this time of our careers we have the chance to go to places that are not on the usual touring map like Edinburgh Castle and Derby, as well as the other cities across the country that we haven’t been to for decades, will make this very special for me.
