Frontman of The Who, now 78 years old, comes to The Liverpool Empire Theatre in July with one of the greatest rock voices of all time – still as powerful as ever!
Roger first assembled the group that would become The Who in 1959 while at Acton County School, recruiting John Entwistle and subsequently agreeing to John’s proposal that Pete Townshend should join. The band went on to become one of the most successful and enduring of all British rock bands, churning out mega hit songs like My Generation, Pinball Wizard, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Baba O’Riley and You Better You Bet.
Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005, Daltrey received a Lifetime achievement award from the British Phonographic Industry in 1988 and from the Grammy Foundation in 2001, as well as receiving a Kennedy Center Honor in 2008 and The George and Ira Gershwin Award for Lifetime Musical Achievement at UCLA in 2016. One of the most celebrated rock musicians ever, Daltrey, along with The Who, has sold over 100 million records worldwide.
Roger has released ten solo studio albums, five compilation albums, and one live album. His solo hits include Giving It All Away, Walking the Dog, Written on the Wind, Free Me, Without Your Love and Under a Raging Moon. The man is a powerhouse with no plans to stop what he does best any time soon.
He’ll be playing a selection that spans his whole career in one of Liverpool’s most loved venues – and you could be there to see it!
