Roger Daltrey, the iconic lead singer of The Who, will perform The Who’s legendary rock opera ‘Tommy‘ from start to finish at selected shows throughout the UK this summer.
Daltrey recently premiered ‘Tommy’ from start to finish at The Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust on March 25th. Roger is now taking it on the road, beyond the majesty of ‘Tommy’, each night music fans will also be treated to a variety of Who classics and more.
Employing the use of striking visuals to accompany the music, every show will be an unforgettable concert experience for lifelong fans and newcomers alike. The much-anticipated tour will hit the road in July (dates below) Tickets for the tour go on sale May 6th at 9am from livenation.co.uk.
‘Tommy’, an album that tells a story about a “deaf, dumb, and blind boy” who becomes the leader of a messianic movement, will always be a turning point for the band, according to Daltrey. He recalls, ‘Within ‘Tommy’, I found the new voice of The Who and the band found its stride in making that music, adjusting it, using all that knowledge that we had from jazz and the blues into making it work in a rock way.”
