America, hold on to your rock-and-roll hats. THE WHO's Roger Daltrey, the iconic lead singer of one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century, is coming to America. Still rocking and bellowing at 80 years of age, there are no signs of this man showing his age.

Together with a crack electric and acoustic band, he digs deep on a rich songbook that includes classics, rarities and solo hits. The tour was aptly named after the intimate settings the band plays in; the audience is always close enough to the action to be part of the concert experience.

Daltrey will not only perform but also engage directly with fans, answering their questions and sharing insights in venues that promise a personal touch not typical of his stadium-filling band performances. Starting in Virginia and culminating in Illinois, this nine-city journey through June will bring fans face-to-face with a rock legend in venues that highlight the nuances of his acoustic interpretations.

Stellar Tour Lineup

Accompanying Daltrey on this tour will be Grammy-nominated Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall and American musician Dan Bern, both of whom will offer their own distinct and unique styles on stage.

This is a lineup that will treat the audience to the different dimensions of musical artistry. Tickets for the newly rescheduled dates will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 22 at livenation.com and ticketmaster.com, and at the venue website on each tour stop.

More purchase information and links at The Who's website. Those unable to buy tickets through the primary market might consider secondary sources such as Vivid Seats, StubHub, SeatGeek, and Ticketmaster, where purchases may also support the tour's promotional partners.

This tour marks a significant return for Daltrey, who, after The Who's recent "The Who Hits Back" tour in the U.S. and Europe, expressed uncertainty about future American tours. In an interview with USA TODAY last April, Daltrey reflected on the demands of live performances and the potential for a final orchestral "Quadrophenia" tour to complete The Who's illustrious catalog.

Despite these uncertainties and previous vocal cord surgeries in 2019, Daltrey remains committed to performing, relying on the expert care of his surgeon at Mass General in Boston to maintain his vocal health.
