The Who: Roger Daltrey expands US summer tour

Roger Daltrey has expanded his summer US tour with the addition of two new dates in August.

The rocker will be joined by members of The Who’s touring band to perform a mix of solo tracks alongside Who classics and rarities when they appear at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA on August 10 and as part of Bayside Summer Nights in San Diego, CA on August 15.

Tickets for the Saratoga show will go on sale Monday, April 9 while seats are now available for the San Diego concert.

The newly-announced dates follow Daltrey’s 13-show run ith the same lineup to perform The Who’s 1969 rock opera, “Tommy”, in its entirety.

The singer will be joined for the early summer appearances by some of the most prestigious orchestras in the United States, including the Boston Pops, the New York Pops and the Nashville Symphony.

On April 20, The Who will mark the 50th anniversary of a pair of legendary New York concerts with the release of “Live At The Fillmore East 1968” on 2CD, 3LP and digital formats; the same day will also see guitarist Pete Townshend issue an expanded 45th anniversary edition of his solo album debut, “Who Came First.”

Both projects surface before the June 1 release of Daltrey’s latest solo album, “As Long As I Have You”, which mixes originals alongside covers of songs by Stevie Wonder, Stephen Stills and Nick Cave.
