The Who’s Roger Daltrey Decides To Cancel US Tour Due To The ‘Uncertainty Of Travel Situation’
Lead singer of The Who, Roger Daltrey, has recently announced on his official Facebook page that he canceled his upcoming solo U.S. tour planned for August and September as a result of travel uncertainty.
As you may recall, the famous rock band The Who was planning to go on a tour in the U.K. and Ireland in Spring 2020, but that show was also canceled due to the pandemic. Although the new dates haven’t announced yet, the band confirmed that the show will definitely happen. The Who have released their latest album ‘WHO’ in 2019, and has also issued recently an expanded version of their 1981’s ‘Face Dances’ as a part of the first Record Store Day drop and an expanded box set of ‘The Who Sell Out’ which was a 1967’s classic.
It has been known that Roger Daltrey was going to go on a tour with The Who’s touring band for his Live and Kicking U.S. solo tour in late summer 2021 to perform some of the band’s classics as well as his solo hits. However, apart from their other shows that were canceled and postponed, Daltrey’s U.S. solo tour also appears to be canceled.
According to his recent statement on his Facebook page, Daltrey said he thought things would get back to normal in August when he planned the dates for the tour. But due to the uncertainty of the travel situation, he said that he reluctantly canceled the shows. He then added that he hopes to re-book them in near future, offering his apologies for the fans who had bought the tickets.
His Facebook post read:
”When I booked these shows several months ago I was confident that things would be back to normal by August, but due to the uncertainty of the current travel situation and the challenges for the UK act to be able to perform in the USA I have reluctantly decided to cancel the shows. I hope to re-book them in the near future, and to those of you who have bought tickets, please accept my sincere apologies. I do appreciate your support and can’t wait to get back to work once the time is right.”
