One of the UK’s greatest singers and legendary frontman of The Who is striking out across the UK this November, a return to performing that cannot come soon enough for The Who legend.

“The truth is singers need to sing,” says Roger,“Use it or lose it”.

“Throughout my life I have sung with so many great musicians, from the heavy rock of The Who and Wilko Jonson, to the Irish lilt of The Chieftains. On this tour I want to take the audience on a musical journey through my career as a singer, with a show of songs and sounds that explores and surprises. I look forward to having closer contact with my audience than festivals and arenas allow. Leaving time to chat.

It’s important to get our road crew working again, without these guys the halls would go silent

It’s also clear that live music is an important part of all our lives, something to free us from the groundhog days that life has become. This pandemic has brought home to me what an important part of me singing is and it’s made me determined to get back onstage asap. See you soon!”

The show, which will comprise a unique mix of music and conversation, is built around Roger’s musical journey and encompasses nearly every style imaginable – including blues, rock, country, soul and metal.

During the evening he will dig into his incredible back catalogue pulling from his nine solo albums, his album with Wilko Johnson, and even reinterpreting a few Who classics and rarities.

This is a show for real music fans and will give a unique insight into how all these great songs came about; what the influences were and where the sounds originated. As with everything Roger does, it will be totally real and authentic and lots of it – a plethora of songs with some questions answered and rock n roll stories along the way – nothing phoned in!

  10. Mark John Howley says:

    Any chance of playing south wales ?

  11. MARK D SMITH says:

    Is joining the fan club being restricted until Friday 9am..
    To be honest trying to join just to get early access for Rogers tour
    Cheeky I know but can’t blame me for trying..

    1. The Who says:

      Mark, The Who Fan Club pre-sale ran from 9.00am Wednesday 8 September until 9.00am Friday 10 September. You can join the fan club any time you want. It’s particularly useful when we announce tours and fans want to get the best seats before they’re gone. You’re not being cheeky! A lot of fans do it.

  12. Walter Schoenke says:

    Any chance of Roger touring the United States?

  13. Paul Desmond Phillips says:

    Just tried to book for the Paladium show and in addition to the ‘fees’ they want to charge me £3.50 to collect the tickets from their box office and a ‘facility fee’.

    I would like to hear how the venue justifies the collection fee.
