The Who might be off the road at the moment, but legendary rock vocalist Roger Daltrey will keep his pipes in shape with his own tour plans this fall. The Use It or Lose It Tour will be the performer’s first solo venture in North America since 1985 and launches October 10 at Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC.

The seven-week outing will hit medium-sized venues across the U.S. and Canada through its November 30 conclusion at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, FL. Along the way, the rock veteran will also perform shows on October 17 at Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, CA; October 30 at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN; November 13-14 at the Music Box in Atlantic City, NJ; and November 25 at the House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista, FL.

“I thought it’d be nice to play smaller, more intimate venues,” Daltrey explained in a statement. “I look forward to getting back to that. I want to give people a good night out. The economic situation being what it is these days, I think that’s what they want: to go out and feel they’ve had a good jolly-up.”

Ticket presales for the tour will be offered through the official Who Web site beginning August 5. Select venues will open their general onsales on August 7, but most public ticket sales will begin August 8. Ticket prices vary depending on the venue, with face values ranging from a low of about $40 to a high of approximately $150.

Daltrey will be backed on stage by longtime collaborator Simon Townshend, younger brother of Who guitarist Pete Townsend, on guitar and backing vocals. Daltrey’s touring band will also include a number of American musicians, including guitarist Frank Simes, keyboardist Loren Gold, bassist Jon Button and drummer Scott Devours.

Set lists will include classics from the Who’s catalogue and Daltrey’s solo material, as well as covers from some of his contemporaries. Daltrey released his eponymous solo debut in 1973 during a Who hiatus, and has maintained an active career apart from his duties with the classic rock band. His most recent studio album is 1992’s “Rocks in the Head.”

“I think I have one of those unique, recognizable rock voices,” Daltrey commented. “Even in a Who show there’s enormous range, but this show will give me an even greater opportunity to explore.”
