And Roger Daltrey - Friday September 3: Washington State Fair, Puyallup, WA.

I saw this and I thought WTF?! Puyallup is a city of 40000 south of Seattle. As was mentioned above, I could picture Herman's Hermits or maybe even current version of the Beach Boys playing these types of fairs. There are several IORR members living in the Pacific Northwest so maybe a chance to see him.

They get good stuff at the fair sometimes. I've seen Flaming Lips (don't think the fair was ready for that) & Jeff Beck there. Dylan played 1 year with Lucinda Williams opening, too. Back to the Lips, they were stunning. Did their set & came back out to do a big chunk of Dark Side of the Moon. When Jeff Beck played, I snuck into the grandstand in the afternoon during soundcheck. Jeff saw us & gave us a tsk tsk sign but he was smiling. This was when Jennifer Batten was in the band.

I saw ZZ Top at the L.A. County Fair in 2015, and they've had many other good bands and artists play there throughout the years.

Willie Nelson, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne, Smokey Robinson, Cheap Trick, Blondie, Bad Company, Hall and Oates, The B-52’s, Doobie Brothers, along with many, many more.

Kinda sad for Roger.
Didn't realize he was a county fair act as a solo.

The Puyallup fair is a pretty big step up from where he's playing the show prior to it though.
A casino outside Spokane. Jesus.

Lets play a game: what do all those acts have in common?

over the years, i’ve seen a number of great acts at the la and orange county fairs. most of the performances, however, have been lackluster. can’t blame artists for being less than enthused. at the fair, they get third billing behind corndogs and deep fried twinkies. kinda sounds about right for a daltrey solo show.

So glad this has or would never be an option,

Appreciate what he's done and all the music, but personally he's in the same sinking boat as Van Morrison and Eric Clapton for me.

Can't stand him, Hope the casino/state fair circuit works out for him though.

Hoping to see the Who again some day...the last two shows I saw them at Hollywood Bowl in '19 along with the Desert Trip shows in '16 were all phenomenal.

LONG LIVE ROCK

Roger's cancelled his Live And Kicking Tour:

''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 a 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."

For those who were planning to attend, bummer.
I have some friends who were on the fence for the Santa Barbara Bowl show, but looks like that dilemma has been solved.
Maybe now we can hope for The Who to return in 2022 when the coast is relatively more clear than it is now which is filled with uncertainty.

"Context"?????? From The Guardian?

Hahahaha

The only context you will get from that paper is one from the despised Smug Metropolitan/socialist types. A viewpoint that is very much out of touch with the population of The UK.

Roger Daltrey: ‘Pete Townshend and I both wear hearing aids now’

The Who singer talks curbing his temper and why nobody over 50 needs a Ferrari

Lisa Grainger
July 21 2021

Singer Roger Daltrey CBE, 77, is a founding member of the Who, who met at Acton County Grammar School and have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. He lives in Sussex with his second wife, Heather, the mother of three of his eight children, and still regularly tours – in part to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

We always had music in the house. It felt like every house had a piano and someone who could knock out a song. People would sing everywhere: inside pubs and outside, and on building sites. We have lost that now. I miss it.

Life wasn’t terrible after the Second World War. We had hardship, but it was good for us. We didn’t eat too much, so we weren’t obese. And everything we wanted we had to create. It wasn’t a throwaway society; you had to make things for yourself.

After the age of 50 you don’t need things like Ferraris. If I was to splurge now, I’d take some friends and family on a tour of Italy.

I believe in being strict with kids. In our house, everyone took turns at washing up and no one could duck it. There were tantrums, but you had to teach ’em. We don’t live in a world where some mythical creature will wipe your bum.

One of the toughest things to try to do is give advice to addicts. Tough love is the only thing that works, but that’s often tougher on you.

I often hit out at people because I came from a rough neighbourhood. And that’s what boys did. You fought. I only learnt to control my temper when the band threw me out – so I had to.

In the early days there were lots of parties, booze and relationships. We had no money, so we were sharing rooms and it was chaos. When we got arrested [in 1973 in Montreal, for wrecking a room], I’d been ordered to go to bed by the doctor, so I didn’t do the smashing up. Some of those rooms did need a bit of redecorating.

Young people should stop listening to such loud music. They don’t need to. If your ears are ringing, you’ll pay. Pete [Townshend] and I both have to wear hearing aids and it’s no fun taking them out; without them, life’s a mumble.

I wouldn’t have been a good father when I was on the road. There’s no point in wishing that I could have. I couldn’t. When three daughters arrived on my doorstep [unexpectedly in the Nineties, the products of relationships with women in the Sixties], I accepted them and I love them very much. I am very lucky.

I would have preferred some reforms to Europe, rather than leaving. Although I was never a huge fan. I could see what they were creating and that was a federal state without asking us.

Teenagers in hospital have totally different needs – psychologically and physically – from small children and adults. The drug companies don’t care about their needs though, because they make far more money from older people with cancer.

There is far too much overanalysis going on. The whole world is becoming neurotic. There are real things to worry about.

I don’t actually like my voice. But I know when I am getting the feeling right. I love voices like Joan Armatrading, Smokey Robinson, Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Plant, Paul Weller. And Van Morrison – his voice is the same as it always was.

I roll with things. What’s the point of worrying? An Austrian physio I had in the Eighties would say, “What are you holding on to pain for? When you let go, it will be all right.” That’s how I approach everything now.

There’s nothing wrong with being the best plumber in Sussex. I didn’t finish school, and it didn’t matter, because I wasn’t academic.

I appreciate people protesting about climate change, but a pink boat in the middle of Oxford Circus isn’t going to solve anything. It seems that there are people creating new markets to make money, but nothing is being done to solve the CO2 problems.

Playing with a rock band is like sitting on a stool and trying to maintain balance after four drinks. Whereas playing with an orchestra is like being on a big old comfy sofa that you relax into. It is not easier. Just a different feel.

Pete and Roger, turn up your hearing aids, if you need to, and listen to one of the four acoustic gigs at Kingston Granada (now called Pryzm), back in February 2020.
Here, you can hear how good you still are. thumbs up
I always listen on decent headphones and nothing less than brilliant. smileys with beer

The Guardian is virtually unreadable, I find. Some of the music-related journalism is very good, but their general coverage on news and current affairs is so up it’s own arse, it’s unreal. It just panders to, like you state, the metropolitan elite and woke brigade.

Actually it's "Acton Grammar". I know that because I knew the headmaster there because I was dating his daughter at the time. :-)
