Trending Now

Roger Daltrey threatened to stop a Who gig this week after smelling marijuana.

The Who were performing at New York’s Nassau Coliseum on Wednesday (May 20), when the singer smelt the smoke – he is allergic to the drug.

He informed the crowd that “the show will be over” if the smoker continued, adding: “So it’s your choice, I can’t do anything about it. I’m doing my best.”


Fans reportedly began chanting “eat it”, while Pete Townshend suggested a different method of taking the drug. “Up your fucking arse. It’s the quickest way!”

“And by far the most pleasurable!” added Daltrey. The singer’s voice is reported to have temporarily deteriorated after he came into contact with the smoke. Watch the moment below:
