The brief trek begins in June

The Who Roger Daltrey live
Roger Daltrey [The Rock Revival]

This summer, The Who frontman Roger Daltrey will be returning to the United States on a special solo tour. The brief trek will see the rock icon presenting a mostly acoustic set of big hits and rare gems from The Who, as well as some solo nuggets and other surprises with an intimate rock-based band. There will also be a very special Q&A session with members of the audience as well at every show.

The run begins on June 12 at the Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia and wraps up on June 29 at The Pavilion at Ravinia in Highland Park, Illinois. Special guests include GRAMMY-nominated Scottish singer and songwriter KT Tunstall along with Dan Bern. The unique venues and amphitheaters Daltrey has chosen for his summer run will showcase Roger’s acoustic interpretations of his extraordinary canon of Who songs and solo work, supported by a hand-picked ensemble of musicians – Simon Townshend on guitar and backing vocals; Billy Nicholls on mandolin and backing vocals; Jody Linscott on percussion; Doug Boyle on guitar; John Hogg on bass and backing vocals; Katie Jacoby on violin and backing vocals; Steve “West” Weston on harmonica; Geraint Watkins on keyboards and accordion; Scott Devours on drums.

Daltrey’s return to the States follows The Who’s incredibly successful The Who Hits Back! U.S. tour of 2022. Revisit our review and live photos from the band’s stop at UBS Arena in New York. The charismatic singer also brought a highly successful solo tour to the United States in 2018 with a 10-city run that showcased The Who’s legendary rock opera Tommy, supported by full orchestral backing. Never content to rest on his laurels, the adventurous artist will continue to peel back the layers on his upcoming June tour, excited about expressing more musical shades of his solo palette, which he has generously shared with audiences in the US and beyond throughout his career.

Also known to be one of rock’s more candid, straight-shooters, the working-class Daltrey (originally from London’s Shepherd’s Bush) will answer questions from the audience during the shows, sharing anecdotes and offering up uniquely tailored renditions of songs seldom performed live either by The Who or Daltrey.

In crafting this completely new show set to kick off in June 2024, Daltrey looks forward to unveiling one of his more intimate and unique stage shows, an up close and personal gift to his fans that highlights Who rarities, solo hits, and other songs from his incredible near 60-year career.

Roger Daltrey, CBE, Teenage Cancer Trust’s Honorary Patron and co-founder of Teen Cancer America (with Pete Townshend) recently added harmonica to a historic recording. On March 15, Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler released a new, special recording of his anthemic composition, ‘Going Home (Theme From Local Hero)’ featuring over 60 of the finest rock performers ever assembled on one iconic track, including members of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Dire Straits, The Who, Pink Floyd, Queen, Black Sabbath, The Shadows, Rush, Guns N’ Roses, and many more. The milestone release, currently available to order here, will raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK and Teen Cancer America in the US.
