Like such young upstarts as One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer, the Who, those old geezers, are announcing their tour way in advance. Their 50th anniversary tour, which starts in April, will land at Target Center on Oct. 10, 2015.

The trek is dubbed The Who Hits 50 Tour. But, as singer Roger Daltrey put it in a statement, “This is the beginning of the long goodbye.”

Guitarist and chief songwriter Pete Townshend promises a set of “hits, picks, mixes and misses.”

The Rock Hall of Famers did not announce the other band members. Remember, the Who is down to the The Two of Daltrey and Townshend.  Drummer Keith Moon and bassist John Entwistle passed away in 1978 and 2002, respectively.

Minneapolis tickets will go on sale on at 10 a.m. Oct. 17;  there is a pre-sale on Oct. 13 for Citi card holders via citiprivatepass.com.

The Who performed its classic “Quadraphenia” album at Target Center in November 2012.
