Roger Opens U.S. Tour With A Stunning Performance


Roger Daltrey and his band tore into Tommy on the first night of his U.S./Canada tour at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood Florida.
 
“I see a lot of shows,” reports Veda Jo Jenkins of the Palm Beach Post, “and this has been the best show of 2011 and a must see for anyone, ranking right up there with Roger Waters “The Wall.”
 
The show ran over 2 hours, with the first half devoted to an incendiary performance of The Who’s ‘Tommy’ and the second half to a selection of Who classics (and rarities) and other songs, including a Johnny Cash set.
