Roger Daltrey Lukewarm on The Who Performing at Woodstock Anniversary Concert
There is much talk about the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock this summer, but Roger Daltrey is not interested in going back to the garden with The Who for an encore.
“August in America is too hot for me to work anymore,” Daltrey tells Billboard. “You can’t redo Woodstock because the stars of Woodstock were the audience…Nobody’s approached us about it, anyway.”
He also revealed that he is talking to Pete Townshend about a new project, but is unsure of where that is going at the moment.
“It’s just, ‘What do we do next?'” Daltrey posed. “It’s really, really difficult. I’m 75 [in March]; I just feel like doing something different, but I don’t know what.”
What he would like to do is release live album documenting his 2018 solo tour, which featured him performing The Who’s 1969 rock opera Tommy with orchestral accompaniment. He’s also considering scheduling more shows in 2019 to mark the album’s 50th anniversary.
