Personalities | The Who | Reunited & Revitalized (2007) | Key Events
Having played all the major historical rock festivals, The Who eventually made it to a traditionally wet and muddy Glastonbury on 24 June 2007. Belting out a career-spanning set, the band headlined a day of top British acts that included the Kaiser Chiefs and Manic Street Preachers. The set finished with the poignant ‘Tea And Theatre’ from Endless Wire, with Roger Daltrey clutching a mug of tea. Pete Townshend, who has a long association with the festival, addressed the audience: ‘We waited a long time to come here. We are so pleased to be here. Thanks for sticking with us.’
Daltrey And The Trans-Siberian Orchestra
In December 2007 Roger Daltrey made a surprise guest appearance with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra at two of their shows: the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island and the Izod Arena in New Jersey. Coming on stage towards the end of their set, Roger played three Who songs – ‘Behind Blue Eyes’, ‘Pinball Wizard’ and the ‘See Me Feel Me/Listening To You’ finale of Tommy. He also joined the orchestra on guitar for a rendition of ‘Christmas Eve In Sarajevo’. Always keen to play live, Daltrey is no stranger to performing with other acts.
