Roger Daltrey

About This Show

Groundbreaking rocker Roger Daltrey, founder and lead singer for the British band The Who, returns to Ravinia for a solo show with special guest KT Tunstall. Born in the West London suburb of Shepherd’s Bush on March 1, 1944, Roger first assembled the group that would become The Who in 1961 while at Acton County Grammar School, recruiting John Entwistle and subsequently agreeing to John’s proposal that Pete Townshend should join. Inspired by R&B, blues, and ’50s rock and roll, Daltrey penned many of the band’s biggest hits. “Baba O’Riley,” “Behind Blue Eyes,” and “You Better Bet” are among that group’s vast array of chart-toppers.

In June and July 2022, Roger Daltrey embarked on his first UK solo tour since 2011. In crafting a completely new show, Daltrey selected not only Who hits but also Who rarities, solo hits, and other songs from his nearly 60-year career, performed with a new semi-acoustic rock-based band. He also wove in anecdotes from his life in and out of music. The tour was received ecstatically by fans, and enjoyed by Daltrey and all who took part—now, Daltrey is taking the show far afield in 2024.

The Grammy-nominated Scottish artist KT Tunstall burst onto the music scene with her 2004 multi-platinum debut, Eye to the Telescope, which spawned the global hits “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Suddenly I See.” These songs, paired with her pioneering looping skills, established Tunstall as a captivating and dynamic must-see performer, as well as a songwriter with a singular knack for balancing introspective folk and propulsive rock.
