The Who frontman will perform hits and rarities at New York area shows.

Roger Daltrey is hitting the road with an electric/acoustic band this summer. The co-founder and lead singer of The Who had stated just last year that The Who would probably won't tour the U.S. again due to financial reasons. He also stated this past January when discussing The Who, that that part of his life is over. Whether or not The Who will ever tour the U.S. again remains to be seen, but one thing is clear, and that is that Roger Daltrey will be touring with a solo band playing the music of The Who.

The Who formed out of London, England in 1964 with the classic lineup featuring Roger Daltrey on vocals, Pete Townshend on guitar, bassist John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon.
