Who-themed "Magic Buses" launched in New York, Chicago and L.A. to celebrate band's 2019 tour

Courtesy of Live NationTo celebrate The Who‘s upcoming 2019 Moving On! tour, special double-decker buses inspired by the band’s classic tune “Magic Bus” — and the cover of its 1968 album Magic Bus — The Who On Tour — have been introduced in three major U.S. cities: New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

The colorfully painted vehicles will be traveling set routes in and around the cities through February 10.

Who fans have the opportunity to enter a sweepstakes to win a pair of premium tickets to one of the band’s concerts by taking a photo of one of the buses and posting it on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #MagicBusEntry and follow and tagging the image with @LiveNation.

Entries will be accepted until February 10 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

As previously reported, the North American portion of The Who’s Moving On! tour will feature two legs, with the first running from a May 7 show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, through a June 1 concert in Toronto, and the second kicking off September 6 in St. Paul, Minnesota, and mapped out through a October 23 performance in Edmonton, Canada. The band will be performing with a different orchestra at each stop on the trek.
