Roger Daltry’s “Tommy” Ready To Hit The Road
Roger Daltrey promises audiences a “spiritual journey” at his upcoming “Tommy” live shows. The Who front-man says that his new renditions of the rock opera hone in on the original album concept. Daltrey performs “Tommy” in its entirety on the road, including tracks that he says The Who never attempted on stage. Roger adds that he hopes fans will make their own connections to the songs as he approaches the material from “inside it.” Daltrey’s 45-date tour begins next Sunday, July 3rd, with a concert in Wolverton, England. The “Tommy” trek makes its way to this side of the Atlantic beginning Tuesday, September 13th, at the Hard Rock Live in Seminole, Florida.
Earlier this year, Daltrey confirmed that his Who bandmate Pete Townshend will stay behind for the tour. He’s suffering from tinnitus, or a ringing in the ear. Pete’s brother Simon Townshend is stepping up as guitarist for this trek.
