Roger Daltrey isn’t touring with The Who this year, but he is touring with their songs. The English singer-songwriter has announced his plans to perform the rock opera “Tommy” and other Who hits across the United States and Canada this fall.

Daltrey begins the “Tommy” tour with a September 13 performance at Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL. The 28-date itinerary concludes two months later with a November 2 concert at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB.

Along the way, and among other dates, Daltrey and company will play September 17 at Agganis Arena in Boston, MA; September 30 at the Sony Centre in Toronto, ON; October 8 at Peabody Opera House in St. Louis, MO; October 19 at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA; and October 27 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.

Public ticket sales for the tour begin today, May 19, in Canada and tomorrow, May 20, in the United States. Several markets on the tour have tickets priced from $40.50 to $126, with other markets offering pricing variations slightly outside that range, according to current AEG Live ticket listings.

The Who and its members have staged their fair share of “Tommy” tours previously, but one thing will set his venture apart. While previous tours have omitted select songs from the groundbreaking album, Daltrey has promised to perform the rock opera opus in its entirety, according to his tour statement.

Daltrey’s touring band will include guitarists Frank Simes and Simon Townshend (younger brother of Who guitarist Pete Townshend), bassist Jon Button, drummer Scott Deavours, and keyboardist Loren Gold.

“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,” said Pete Townshend in support of the tour, though he is not participating. “It is wonderful to hear the way Roger and his new band re-interpret the old Who songs.”

Daltrey hits the road with “Tommy” in July, when he launches a three-week run of dates across the UK. More details of that trek, as well as the North America tour, are available on The Who’s official Web site.
