Happy Birthday to Roger Daltrey, who turns 76 on Sunday (March 1st). The Who will kick off their 11-city UK tour on March 16th in Manchester, England and will launch their next North American run on April 21st at Hollywood, Florida's Hard Rock Live.
The band's latest album, WHO, was released on December 6th, 2019 and entered the Billboard 200 at Number two behind Roddy Ricch's chart-topping Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial. WHO hit the UK charts at Number Three — and still marks the Who's best charting album in the States since 1978's Who Are You — which also peaked at Number Two.
In June 2019, Daltrey released a live album, The Who's Tommy Orchestral. The set was recorded during his 2018 tour stops in Budapest and Bethel in upstate New York — the scene of the first Woodstock festival 50 years ago, where the Who performed Tommy in its entirety.
