In 1969 British rocker The Who released the rock opera “Tommy”.  Now nearly 50 years later, Roger Daltrey is bringing the music back to life in a short U.S. tour that will feature local orchestras in each city.

Saying that he is looking forward to singing “Tommy”, Daltrey noted , “Pete Townshend’s rock music is particularly suited to being embellished by the sounds that an orchestra can add to the band.”
