Roger Daltrey to Perform The Who’s ‘Tommy’ on North American Tour

The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey has announced that he will perform the band’s classic rock opera ‘Tommy’ in its entirety on his upcoming fall tour of North America. The US and Canadian legs of the tour will follow previously announced UK summer dates.

Daltrey explained that the concerts will be “a ‘Tommy’ Show for today’s audience from a different perspective.” He continued, “‘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 seen as a turning point for the band.”

The singer performed his interpretation of the complete ‘Tommy’ album live for the first time in a critically acclaimed concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall in March. The tour will feature new visual elements and will include other classic songs by The Who.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 19 (Canada) and Friday, May 20 (US) via AEG Live. Several VIP packages will also be available.

    SO Incredible!!! Just saw ‘Tommy’ this past week and was blown away at the performance! Daltrey tore down the house with a 2 1/2 hour set showcasing the rock opera from start to finish. Tommy is an ingenious album and Daltrey-a rock legend-that everyone must see live! The theatrics and sound were both perfection! oooo just want to be back at that gig right now!!
    Who else has seen the show? or is going?
