The Who gave a voice to a generation and revolutionized the world’s expectations of rock and roll. Commanding stages for five decades, frontman Roger Daltrey departs from the final leg of the group’s European Quadrophenia and More tour for a one-off solo performance at the Pacific Amphitheatre. Daltrey signed on for the gig after the death of Doors' founding keyboardist Ray Manzarek, who was scheduled to play alongside Robby Krieger and Dave Brock on the same date. In light of Manzarek’s untimely passing, Daltrey’s performance benefits Teen Cancer America. Considering Daltrey’s pivotal role in the history of rock, his OC appearance will be an unforgettable one—if not have a slightly melancholy air.
