Roger Daltrey launched his 18-city U.S. summer concert series Roger Daltrey Performs The Who's Tommy on June 8 in Bethel, New York, at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. The Who frontman dazzled fans with a 27-song setlist, performing The Who's classic 1969 rock opera in its entirety.
Jambase reports on June 9 that the legendary British rocker served up Tommy hits like "Pinball Wizard," “See Me, Feel Me” and “I'm Free” in the 27-song setlist, accompanied by members of The Who's touring band along with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also performed a brief encore of Who greatest hits, including “Who Are You?” and “Baba O'Riley.”
Fans pumped to catch Daltrey during an upcoming stop on his U.S. summer romp can check out fan-shot footage of the “My Generation” hitmaker belting out the hit single “Pinball Wizard.” The crowd roars as longtime Who touring member Simon Townshend (brother of Who co-founder Pete Townshend) performs the instantly familiar guitar introduction and the powerhouse singer delivers the first verse, singing, “Ever since I was a young boy/I played the silver ball.”
Daltrey recently released his first solo album in 26 years As Long as I Have You, which hit shelves June 1 via Polydor. His 10th solo effort overall, the album features his latest single “How Far” and is available here in digital, CD and vinyl formats.
Daltrey's Tommy concert series continues with a two-night stand between June 10 – June 12 in Vienna, Va., at Filene Center At Wolftrap and will wrap up July 8 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, at Blossom Music Center with a series of greatest hits shows to follow, beginning July 10 in Verona, N.Y., at Turning Stone Resort & Casino.
