Tour”, an expansive 25-date outing which can see Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend carry out nightly alongside a full orchestra, with assist offered by Liam Gallagher, Reignwolf, and extra. Nevertheless, for all of that to go on and not using a hitch, Daltrey has one particular request: please don’t toke up on the band’s concert events.
As we discovered throughout The Who’s earlier world tour, Daltrey could be very allergic to pot smoke and the mere presence of it causes his voice to close down. In reality, he virtually walked off the stage mid-way by a live performance in Lengthy Island after the smoke turned too overwhelming.
It appears some Who followers didn’t get the memo, as Daltrey as soon as once more got here head to head with the mary jane throughout The Who’s tour kick-off in New York on Monday evening. “All those smoking grass down within the entrance there, I’m completely allergic to it,” Daltrey advised the group at one level. “I’m not kidding, whoever it’s down there, you fucked my evening and also you made me actually … I’m allergic to that shit and my voice simply goes [slurps]. So fuck you!” (No marvel Jenny Lewis didn’t get an invitation to open a present.)
