Feeling that he is fit enough to sing again, Roger Daltrey paid back The Who's debt.
One week is considered enough for Roger Daltrey to return to the stage. He will resume with The Who in the remaining dates of the North American tour. After the doctor gave the green light, he was heading for the gig in Alltel Arena, Ark. on March 22.
"Boy, it feels good to be out of bed," said Daltrey 30 minutes prior the concert. All in all he maintained to keep the density of his performance while occasionally coughing off the mic. To anticipate that he prepared bottled waters by his side and rested his voice when band mate Pete Townshend delivered "Eminence Front".
Within the 95 minutes show, most of the songs were sung except for one. There was an addition of 20 minutes encore that featured a medley of songs from their seminal rock opera "Tommy".
Due to the bronchial situation that Daltrey had to face, The Who was forced to cancel three previous gigs at Tampa, Mexico City and San Antonio.
