Daltrey Touring With Clapton

A few other Who items....

Roger Daltrey and Eric Clapton hit the road starting tonight in Pittsburgh for a bunch of shows. From what I gather it will be a similar format to the one used by Clapton and Jeff Beck at their recent shows. A solo set by each performer and then the two team up to close out the concert.

Daltrey told a radio station that he was interested in getting Liam Gallagher for this year's set of Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at the Royal Albert Hall but that Liam had another engagement that night. This led to a couple of media outlets to report that Gallagher snubbed The Who. So much for responsible reporting.

The annual benefit celebrates it's 10th anniversary this year and Daltrey has lined up some pretty good performers. Depeche Mode, Them Crooked Vultures, Noel Gallagher and others are slated to perform at the series of concerts which take place next month.
