The Who  frontman Roger Daltrey has recently announced a tour of North America, where he will perform the band’s groundbreaking rock opera Tommy in its entirety.

The tour comes as a follow-up to Daltrey’s recent Royal Albert Hall performance of Tommy, notable for marking the first time the album had been played in sequence live. Daltrey takes his show on the road for six weeks on Sept. 13 starting in Hollywood, Fla. and finishing up in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Nov. 2.

Pete Townshend won’t be joining Daltrey on the tour, but he wishes his partner well with the show. “Great to see Roger performing TOMMY with his band in 2011,” he says. “I will be there in spirit. Roger has my complete and most loving support. Roger is touring his unique concert version of TOMMY using his faithful presentation of the original work as the backbone for a set of wider material. It is wonderful to hear the way Roger and his new band re-interpret the old Who songs.”
