Roger Daltrey reveals details of his forthcoming tour and plans for The Who to hit the road next year.
The Who star Roger Daltrey has revealed that the band will go on tour next year and that his upcoming series of solo shows is in preparation for going on the road in 2010.
Speaking to the group's official website, the 65-year-old singer said that playing gigs beforehand will allow him to be in top form when the band performs live.
The solo dates, which include Pete Townshend's younger brother, will see Daltrey mostly singing his own songs with a couple of classics from The Who in there as well.
"We're [The Who] doing something next year
I have to be in tip-top form and the only way to go out and do that is to go out and sing. So, I got a band together with Simon Townshend, and we'll just go out and play some of my own stuff," he told the website.
Daltrey added that The Who songs he plans to sing will be done in the style he would have recorded them in had he been a solo artist.
The tour, called Use It or Lose It, will take place in the US and Canada.
