Roger Daltrey's 'Use It or Lose It' Tour - his first solo tour since '85

Roger DaltryRoger DaltryRoger DaltryRoger Daltry

Daltrey will be joined onstage by a longtime collaborator, guitarist/backup singer Simon Townshend, and a stellar crew of American players, including guitarist/musical director Frank Simes, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Scott Devours.

Promising a healthy serving of Who songs ("but they'll be my versions of them"), solo material - including some songs he's never played live - and covers that pay tribute to his influences and admired contemporaries. Although he prefers to keep his set lists a surprise, it's no secret that Daltrey has over the years performed songs by the likes of Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Queen, among others, alongside favorites from his Who and solo catalogs.

Daltrey's solo tour comes to NYC on Friday, November 20th for a show at Nokia Theatre Times Square. Tickets are on sale now.

The tour also includes four Jersey stops. Tickets to his November 17th show at Red Bank's Count Basie Theater are on sale now. The show at Montclair's Wellmont Theatre (November 11th) goes on presale August 19th. And his pair of Atlantic City dates (November 13th and 14th) go on presale September 2nd.

maybe he will be the next one to die. after that, all that is left is the pedophile.

wow. could you imagine paying money to see roger daltrey play fucking solo? damn.

Posted by Anonymous | August 14, 2009 12:20 AM

how much are tickets, $700?

this guy is such a joke now. I remember seeing "The Who" in 2006 at MSG and leaving thinking it was the worst show I had ever been to in my life.

Time to call it quits, boys.

$60 is hardly crazy to see the voice of THE fucking WHO in venues far smaller than they ever play.

the who sucks now and forever. srsly. Keith Moon was the only dude who knew what was up and he peaced out.

Sounds like most of you wouldn't know good rock if it hit you in the head, because that's what the who or Roger Daltry do. Awesome lyrics and music nomatter where and when you here them. Last tour Roger had a bad voice but has since improved. Love Roger and the Who, but miss Keith Moon who was by far the best drummer ever.

There is a review of Roger Daltrey’s show in Boston on Sunday, November 8 at the Country Standard Time website:

This solo tour dates will surely make the audience enjoy so much! I hope I could see one of his shows because I really like his music.
