Roger Daltrey: Who Was I: UK Tour 2022

With just nine days until the first night of Roger’s UK tour, we’re pleased to announce the members of his band for these twelve shows.

Simon Townshend Guitar and vocals

Doug Boyle Guitar

Geraint Watkins Keyboards

John Hogg Bass

Jody Linscott Percussion

Billy Nicholls Backing vocals

Steve Weston Harmonica

Ben Townshend Drums

Katie Jacoby Violin

Simon Townshend, brother of Pete, you will, of course, know very well from countless Who shows.

Doug Boyle on guitar; Doug played guitar for several years with Robert Plant and has played for Nigel Kennedy and in recent years has been a member of Caravan.

Geraint Watkins, Welshman and king of the keyboards, has played for Dave Edmunds, Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler and Slim Chance.

John Hogg on bass, from Indie band Moke, known, appropriately enough, for their 1990s single, ‘My Degeneration’.

Jody Linscott, a regular on Who shows and solo shows for both Roger and Pete.

Likewise, Billy Nicholls, a major part of The Who family for so many years.

Steve ‘West’ Weston – one of Britain’s top blues harp players – you’ll know him from the Going Back Home album which Roger made with Wilko Johnson. Steve is the harp player of choice for Mud Morganfield (Muddy Water’s son) when Morganfield plays shows in the UK.

On drums, Ben Townshend, son of Simon T, who has played on several of Simon’s albums and albums by The Cornerstones.

And who else but  . . . the fabulous Katie Jacoby on violin.

Roger’s special guest on all twelve shows will be Leslie Mendelson.

    Booked my tickets, really pleased but more pleased as to seeing Doug Boyle playing again. What a talent and so glad to see him playing back at this level.

  6. Bernard Baaruch says:

    Bought 2 tickets for the Bournemouth show last September. Unfortunately nothing has arrived and trying to contact AXS Tickets is a nightmare. Looks like we will have lost our money and missed the show. Been a Who fan since 1965 so bitterly disappointed. Reviews on this company on Trip Advisor and elsewhere are appalling.

  7. Ron Nachbar says:

    Look forward to Bournemouth in 2 days. We’re here from California and after 49 years of seeing Mr Daltrey am excited to see this new band. Met Roger in 1979 outside Capital Theater in Passaic NJ after Keith passed. We talked for a few minutes outside his limousine. First saw them in 1973 at the Philadelphia Spectrum 6 weeks after Quadrophenia came out.

  8. Helen Bryant says:

    I THINK you’ll get them emailed shortly before the show… I hope so because I’m still waiting, too.

  9. Chris Mayne says:

    Looking forward to tomorrow nights gig in Bournemouth

  10. Jelle Edelenbosch says:

    Will we be able to arrive in London? Tickets London Palladium (july 17) bought in february and plane booked. But Schiphol is a disaster nowadays. Many flights are cancelled. Consequence: we are shakin’ allover…
