One of the UK’s greatest singers, Roger Daltrey, is striking out across the UK this autumn, a return to performing that cannot come soon enough for The Who legend, who will be appearing at the Cliffs Pavilion, Southend on November 19.
“The truth is singers need to sing,” says Roger, “use it or lose it”.
“Throughout my life I have sung with so many great musicians, from the heavy rock of The Who and Wilko Johnson, to the Irish lilt of The Chieftains. On this tour I want to take the audience on a musical journey through my career as a singer, with a show of songs and sounds that explores and surprises. I look forward to having closer contact with my audience than festivals and arenas allow. Leaving time to chat.”
Roger’s solo career began in 1973 with the single ‘Giving It All Away’ which reached number 5 in the UK charts. It was a track from his first solo album ‘Daltrey’, released that same year, which he followed up with eight more albums, including 2018’s acclaimed Top 10 UK charting ‘As Long As I Have You’. As well as his collaboration with Wilko Johnson in 2014 on their top 5 album “Going Back Home”.
The show, which will comprise of a unique mix of music and conversation, is built around Roger’s musical journey and encompasses nearly every style imaginable.
As with everything Roger does, it will be totally real and authentic and lots of it – a plethora of songs with some questions answered and rock n roll stories along the way – nothing phoned in!
