The iconic British rocker revealed the news via an update posted Aug. 21 at the official website of The Who. The new date follows on the heels of the wrap up of The Who's U.S. summer tour on Aug. 16 in Stateline, Nev. The solo romp will take place at the conclusion of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's first-ever tour of South America, which launches Sept. 21 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at Allianz Parque and finishes Oct. 1 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at Estadio Unico de La Plata.
It will be Daltrey's first return to Clearwater, Fla., since performing at Ruth Eckerd Hall solo on Nov. 30, 2009 during his Use It Or Lose It Tour. The new addition brings the total number of North American solo shows up to four dates, including a stop on Nov. 1 in Hollywood, Florida, at Hard Rock Live along with a pair of shows in Canada and a previously announced eight-night concert getaway, which runs between Oct. 27 – Nov. 5 in Riviera Maya, Mexico, at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya.
The charismatic lead vocalist will be supported by The Who's current touring band with the highly notable exception of Who co-founder and principal songwriter Pete Townshend.
