“All the ones smoking grass down in the front there, I’m totally allergic to it,” he said. “I’m not kidding. Whoever it is down there, you’ve f*****d my night. I’m allergic to that s**t and my voice just goes”
Roger Daltrey’s Madison Square Gardens gig last Monday came to a grinding halt as the aging rock star stopped the show when the teenage wasteland got a little too wasted for his liking.
“All the ones smoking grass down in the front there, I’m totally allergic to it,” he said. “I’m not kidding. Whoever it is down there, you’ve f*****d my night. I’m allergic to that s**t and my voice just goes.”
Daltrey is currently playing with The Who alongside surviving band member, guitarist, and singer Pete Townshend. The band is accompanied by a full 48-piece orchestra and travelling on 25-date North American Tour Moving On!.
Founded in the mid-1960s by Daltrey, Townshend, late drummer Keith Moon, and late bass player John Entwistle, The Who became known as the harbingers of wild, guitar-smashing onstage antics and devil-may-care rock star behaviour.
Daltrey, however, seems to be developing a habit of chastising concertgoers for lighting up during his performances, having threatened to walk offstage at a Long Island gig in celebration of the band’s 50th anniversary when he caught the scent of the devil’s lettuce.
“I hope I die before I get old,” Daltrey sings in “My Generation.”
Too late, Mr. Daltrey. Too late.
