While the Who‘s orchestral tour has been indefinitely scrapped due to the ongoing pandemic — Roger Daltrey is heading back on the road, having announced two shows for late-summer.
As it stands now, Daltrey has only a pair of dates on the books; August 21st in Stateline, Nevada at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys, and on September 1st in Airway Heights, Washington at BECU Live Outdoor Concert Venue.
Roger Daltrey admitted that playing a solo show is a cakewalk compared to a typical Who gig any day: “One thing I’m really not worried about — I’m not short of material. It’s just nice to do something that’s not as much pressure as a Who tour. Y’know, ultimately is there a good night out, aren’t you. . . is there a good time? What more can you do? As long as everyone enjoys themselves, I think that’s the secret to this, and I’m just gonna have a lot of fun. Who tours can be quite grueling. The Who shows can be quite grueling. It’s floor to the floor the whole way — that’s not easy every night. This gives it a bit more. . . a little bit more freedom. In that sense pressure will be off — and the size of the venues, of course.”
