No Plan B, also known as the Roger Daltrey Band, is a rock band assembled by The Who singer Roger Daltrey to support performances and tours outside of The Who. Daltrey's band includes Simon Townshend (brother of Pete Townshend) on guitar and vocals, Frank Simes on lead guitar, Jon Button on bass, Loren Gold on keyboards and Scott Devours on drums. Frank Simes is also Musical Director for the band.[1] In an 2010 appearance on The Alan Titchmarsh Show, Daltrey called the band No Plan B.[2]

History

Daltrey at center with band members at Royal Albert Hall in March 2011.

In 2009 Roger Daltrey embarked on a tour of the U.S. and Canada with a new band assembled in Los Angeles, California. During 2010, the band performed as the support act for Eric Clapton, as well as performing additional solo shows.

In 2011, the band embarked on the Tommy Reborn[3] tour, which included a special benefit show for the Teenage Cancer Trust (of which Daltrey is a patron) at the Royal Albert Hall in London on March 24, 2011. Pete Townshend joined the band onstage at this show for the songs "The Acid Queen" and "Baba O'Riley", and violinist Charlie Siem played the violin solo in "Baba O'Riley". In 2011 the band toured the UK performing The Who's Tommy, followed by dates in Europe, the U.S. and Canada. The AEG Live-produced tour North American tour launched in Hollywood, Florida, at the Seminole Hard Rock September 13 and wrapped in Calgary, Alberta at the Scotiabank Saddledome. All shows were well-received, and the band booked additional dates in Europe and Japan for 2012.

Set lists have included music from The Who, from Daltrey's solo albums, and various covers of other material. Harmonies performed by Daltrey's band has allowed them to perform Who songs that have remained unperformed since as far back as the 1960s. At the October 12, 2009 show in Seattle, Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder joined Daltrey on stage for performances of Pearl Jam's "Better Man" and The Who's "The Real Me" and "Bargain".[4] The band was joined on stage by Ronnie Wood, Paul Weller, Kelly Jones and Michael Miley at the 28 March 2012 Royal Albert Hall performance for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
