Roger Daltrey kicked off his UK tour with a rousing performance of Tommy, some of The Who’s greatest hits and more. The venue was the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton, which happens to be the home town of singer Robert Plant, who was in the audience.
The following night it was the turn of Geordie fans at the Sage in Gateshead to be treated to the performance by Daltrey, ably supported by his young band, which includes Frank Simes (guitar), Scott Deavours (drums), Jon Button(Bass), Loren Gold (Keyboards) and, also on guitar, Simon (younger brother of Pete) Townshend.
The tour has been a huge success. Reviews so far:
A 4 star review in The Guardian
gigwise (review of Manchester show)
South Wales Argus (review of Newport show)
Daily Express (review of Guilfest show)
If you’ve been to one of the shows, why not submit your review to the Who’s GIGOGRAPHY. It will become a permanent part of Who history.
Audio downloads of all shows in both the UK and US tours are being made available.
