However, there would be widespread changes in the band's live presentation from their previous tours, largely at Pete Townshend 's behest. Citing difficulties with his hearing due to tinnitusTownshend wanted the band to play at a lesser volume than in previous years and now preferred to play acoustic guitar for much of the act, necessitating a second guitarist to handle much of the lead guitar duties, though Townshend would still play a fair amount of electric guitar and play lead on certain numbers.
The group also decided to part ways with drummer Kenney Jones and recruited Simon Phillipswith whom Townshend had worked on his solo album Empty Glassto take his place for the tour. A number of additional personnel were added as well, including a five-piece horn section playing on roughly half the songs in the set and backup singers, for a total of 15 band members in all.

Two live radio broadcasts also occurred during the tour, the Radio City Music Hall date in June and the show at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on the last night of the North American tour; an edited broadcast of the charity concert at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles later aired on the Fox Network. Shows on the tour often ran for three hours or more and the set list varied from one point to another, with group mixing in familiar material with lesser-known songs like John Entwistle 's " Trick of the Light " and a few tracks from Townshend's solo efforts.
The band occasionally performed "Dig", one of the two new Who songs included on Townshend's latest album, The Iron Manas well as acoustic performances of rare numbers such as " Mary Anne with the Shaky Hand " and "Too Much of Anything", neither of which the band had played more than a handful of times in the past.
