Rocker Roger Daltrey is planning his first full solo tour since 1995 in an effort to keep his voice in tip-top shape.

The Who singer is in negotiations to play warm-up shows in Maryland and Virginia in November, ahead of a reported 27-date tour.

The singer insists his voice has suffered from rare dates with The Who - and he's keen to get back to his best.

He says, "I've got to keep singing... Singing seven gigs a year is not good enough for a singer. You've got to keep doing it, especially singing the way I sing. I could do some serious damage if I stopped, so I've got to keep going."

Well, define top shape. His voice is getting pretty ragged. Can't sing that way for decades, guess it's inevitable.

Only saw Daltrey solo once, years ago on the "Daltrey Sings Townshend" tour. Great show but it would have been nice to hear some of his solo stuff. Hopefully this time around...

Later that summer Townshend came to town, "Pschoderilict" tour @ Great Woods. There were some technical problems & we were lucky enough to witness an epic Pete meltdown. Threatening to go backstage & start killing people. Scrapped the whole psycho-d thing and played extremely angry Who classics for the rest of the night. One of the greatest shows I've ever seen.

I thought his voice was pretty shot two Who tours ago which is the last time I saw them. I have seen The Who about ten times and that was the first time I wasn't impressed. I love The Who but won't be going to see them live anymore. I would though go to see Pete Townsend live solo. He still has all his chops.

Here's an audio from a good while back when Roger was having a
tough time with his voice. It sounds like he says "I've sung my
voice out, **** it", or something to that effect.


Not that this is a relevant clip, but this thread led me to look for a sample
of Daltrey's recent vocal work. This is more interesting than some of the
more recent clips that I found.


Thats an old clip, Entwistle is still playing. I saw them 2yrs ago and I thought Roger sounded pretty good that night in Indy and others said that too. But my friend also saw them on that same tour in Grand Rapids and Chicago and said one of those nights Daltry did not sound good. So he may have his off and on nights.

I agree. I did not like the last Who outing I saw and will not see them again. It's time to call it a career.

Wow, I had that exact same feeling.

It wasn't really Roger's voice that made me not want to see them again though. I figure Roger's voice is just going to keep changing. Accepting that, I know that it'll probably be good enough if I DID go to see them again...

But my problem lay in that even with a new album (and though I did get to enjoy a few new songs) I felt like I was getting the same setlist... again. I will ALWAYS love them and support them in some way, but I do not need to spend that much money to hear the same songs played again.

I saw The Who in 1982 on their "farewell" tour with Kenny Jones on drums. Daltrey and Jones were both dreadful. Roger's voice was totally shot that night and Kenny Jones was sleepwalking on drums, doing little more than keeping a beat. Never again and I say this as a huge fan of Keith Moon era Who. Some bands have their time and The Who's has long passed.

If you would have gone to see them before the Ox died and with Zakk Starky on drums you would have loved them. The first couple of tours without Entwistle were just OK but the last couple were forgettable IMO.

They should have called it a day after John's death.

The Who is a good source of income for Daltrey and Townsend. That's all it is these days. I can't say I was impressed with "Endless Wire" or the live DVD they released around the same time to promote the album. Pete was great but Roger stumbled around looking awkward, throwing the mic and missing it. It was sad. And yeah, he (Roger) once again came in too early on "Wont' Get Fooled Again." Glad I listened/saw both from a library borrow and didn't spend $ on either.

Anyone ever seen the documentary about John and the Who? I caught it the other night on the Ovation channel. Pretty good stuff. They've been showing documentaries on lots of rock musician for the past several days. I caught Clapton's on I think, Tuesday, but missed the Hendrix one. Except for commercials every five minutes, Ovation is a great channel....
