WATCH: The Who's Roger Daltrey tells off pot-smoking fans during MSG gig

News 16/05/2019

The Who's Roger Daltrey has made it crystal clear that pot-smoking would not be allowed at any Who concerts.

At the band's sold-out Madison Square Garden gig earlier this week, Daltrey scolds, "All the ones smoking grass down in the front there, I'm totally allergic to it." "I'm not kidding, whoever it is down there, you fucked my night and you made me really… I’m allergic to that shit and my voice just goes [makes noise] It sucks up. So fuck you!"

A similar incident happened four years ago around the same time and place where Daltrey threatened to walk off the stage if a fan continued to smoke weed. 

The local paper's concert review that night wrote about how "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'." They also noted that Daltrey's voice went back to normal immediately after the smoking stopped.
