By on May 24, 2011 in

Legendary singer-songwriter Roger Daltrey just recently announced his plans to perform the rock opera Tommy at 28 different venues in the U.S. and Canada this fall. The run will begin at the Seminold Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL September 13th and close at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB November 2nd. Boston’s Agganis Arena will play host to The Who frontman September 17th before he graces the stage at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ the following day.

Tommy served as Tho Who’s fourth studio album, a project that marked the first musical work to be billed intentionally as a rock opera. In 1998 Tommy was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for its “historical, artistic and significant value,” selling over 20 million copies worldwide. Daltrey will be hitting the road with guitarists Frank Simes and Simon Townshend (younger brother of Who guitarist Pete Townshend), bassist Jon Button, drummer Scott Deavours, and keyboardist Loren Gold.
