Pete Townshend Not On Tommy Tour

Pete Townshend has decided that the hearing impairment caused by hundreds of high-decibel Who concerts over the decades makes the prospect of further damage and pain that would result form a July tour performing the 1969 Rock Opera Tommy impossible for him to participate in. Filling his role in the 15 concert UK tour with Roger Daltrey will be Pete's younger brother, Simon. While he won't be part of the tour, Daltrey's long-time band mate said he will '...be there in spirit', and gave the tour his endorsement, calling THE tour an opportunity to hear a '...unique version of Tommy using ...the original work as the backbone for a set of wider material.'
