Watch Roger Daltrey Stop A Show Short Because Someone Was Smoking Weed At His Concert
While performing at the Nassau Coliseum Wednesday night – as part of their 50th anniversary tour – The Who’s Roger Daltrey stopped the show to call out a concert goer who decided to spark up a joint.
Apparently Daltrey is allergic to marijuana smoke and enough of it was creeping toward the stage, forcing the frontman to confront the individual in the audience.
The crowd then began to yell at the person, telling him to eat it.
Even Pete Townshend interjected, telling the concertgoer to shove the weed “up your f*ckin’ arse! That’s the quickest way!”
Newsday reported that “The smoke’s impact was almost immediate on his voice, which went from crystal clear and potent for the opening ‘I Can’t Explain’ to something rougher and more limited during ‘I Can See for Miles.’”
Kind of ironic isn’t it… the whole sex, drugs and rock n’ roll thing, yet he’s allergic to marijuana.
