The Who's Roger Daltrey cancels UK shows due to poor ticket sales

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has cancelled three UK shows he was scheduled to play this summer due to poor ticket sales.

Daltrey was due to perform at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire on July 3, Ripley Castle in Harrogate on July 17 and at Powderham Castle near Exeter on July 24, but all these dates have now been cancelled. Ticket buyers have been told they can claim a full refund from their point of purchase.

According to Stereoboard organisers have cited poor ticket sales as the reason for the cancellation, with Simon Fishwick, General Manager at Powderham Castle commenting: "It's all to do with poor ticket sales, I'm afraid. It was an exciting event, but it just does not seem to have got anyone going."

The dates were booked as part of The Who frontman's UK tour, which will see him performing the band's rock opera 'Tommy'.

Roger Daltrey will now play:

Gateshead Sage (July 4)
Glasgow Clyde Auditorium (6)
Manchester Bridgewater Hall (7)
Nottingham Royal Centre (9)
Newport Centre (10)
Bristol Colston Hall (12)
Southend Cliffs Pavillion (13)
Guildford Guilfest (15)
Hampshire Broadlands (16)
Hull City Hall (19)
London Indigo O2 (21)
Norwich Blicking Hall (22)
