Roger Daltrey: A Night Of The Who Classics
Roger Daltrey has cultivated a singing career outside of The Who, beginning in 1973 when he found himself on the BBC’s “Top of the Pops,” the UK’s then premier chart TV show, promoting the single “Giving It All Away” which reached number five in the UK charts. It was a track from his first solo album “Daltrey,” released that same year, which he followed up with the albums that include “Ride A Rock Horse,” “One Of The Boys,” the soundtrack to “McVicar,” “Parting Should Be Painless” and “After The Fire.”
Daltrey’s 1994 solo concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall, with The Juilliard Orchestra, was the fastest-selling event in the venue’s history. The following year, he appeared on stage as the Tin Man in a production of “The Wizard of Oz” at The Lincoln Centre, and in 1998 he starred as Scrooge in “A Christmas Carol” at Madison Square Garden. He has also performed with his friends “The Chieftains,” the traditional Irish band and toured the world with the British Rock Symphony, interpreting a variety of rock classics.
