LEGENDARY WHO FRONTMAN TO PERFORM
ENTIRE ALBUM FRONT TO BACK ON UK TOUR
Roger Daltrey, the iconic lead singer of The Who, will perform The Who's legendary rock opera Tommy from start to finish. The Who never actually played the complete Tommy. Their 1989 tour ommitted the tracks "Underture" and "Welcome". Daltrey premiered the show at The Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust on March 25 and is now taking it on the road.
Employing striking visuals to accompany the music, every show will be an unforgettable experience for lifelong fans and newcomers alike, who will be treated not only to the full majesty of Tommy, but also to a variety of Who Classics and more.
Joining Daltrey on the road will be Frank Simes (guitar), Scott Deavours (drums), Jon Button (Bass), Loren Gold (Keyboards) and also on guitar will be Simon Townshend, younger brother of The Who's guitarist Pete Townshend.
Commenting on the tour, Pete Townshend says "Great to see Roger performing Tommy with his band in 2011. I will be there in spirit and Roger has my complete and most loving support. Roger is touring his unique concert version of Tommy using his faithful presentation of the original work as the backbone for a set of wider material. It is wonderful to hear the way Roger and his new band re-interpret the old Who songs."
