 Who singer Roger Daltry is set to tour the U.K. this summer performing the legendary rock opera “Tommy”.  Guitarist Pete Townshend will not be accompanying him but Pete’s younger brother Simon will.  Here’s what Pete had to say about the project:

“Great to see Roger performing Tommy with his band in 2011,” Pete said. “Roger is touring his unique concert version … 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. I will be there in spirit, and Roger has my complete and most loving support.”
