Roger Daltrey continues to expand his 2018 solo touring schedule. The iconic British rocker will return to the U.S. for a dozen shows in June and July to perform The Who's pioneering rock opera Tommy in its entirety.
The Who frontman announced the big news on Jan. 29 via Facebook and other social media on the heels of being announced among the headliners at the 2018 Teen Cancer Trust benefit concert series, which will take place between March 19 – March 25 at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will be backed on the U.S. summer trek by members of The Who's touring band and by some of the best orchestras across the U.S.
Dubbed “Roger Daltrey Performs The Who's Tommy,” the summer run will launch on June 8 in Bethel, N.Y., at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Daltrey and company will perform in some of the nation's finest venues with stops in Philadelphia, Nashville and Detroit, before wrapping up July 8 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, at Blossom Music Center.
Select presales start Wed, Jan. 31 at 10:00 a.m. local time through Thurs., Feb. 1 at 10:00 p.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Fri., Feb. 2 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.
“I'm really looking forward to singing Tommy, not only with my great backing group, but also with some of the finest orchestras in the country," writes Daltrey via a media release. "It should make a memorable night of entertainment for all those who love the arts.”
The hardworking singer shows no signs of slowing down while Who bandmate Pete Townshend takes a sabbatical to enjoy his honeymoon. Daltrey has written his first-ever biography, which will be published in August and will also be in the U.S. for a short run of solo dates, beginning with a two-night stand between March 7 – March 10 in Las Vegas at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and wrapping up March 15 in Oakland, Calif., at Fox Theater.
