The Who’s lead vocalist Roger Daltrey has drawn attention of some fans who smoked marijuana during a concert of the band on Monday in New York, United States. The situation was so unexpected that the video with the moment was posted into social networks – and the singer felt the need to explain himself in a statement.
“All I ask is a bit of respect for someone doing their best to give everyone a good night,” Daltrey said in a new statement to Billboard magazine. He then stressed that he suffers an “extreme allergic reaction” to marijuana smoke, something that “is known to true fans of The Who.”
“I have a sensitive problem in my vocal cords and the smoke has the effect of ‘turning off’ my voice, making my job very complicated. If you have to smoke, get your ass out and go to the bathroom or eat.
Please, avoid blowing in my direction. Probably I end up smoking more of your marijuana than you do and it becomes a nightmare for a singer. You are compromising the show with your selfish behavior. Think a little,” he said.
The unexpected moment, whose video was posted on social networks this week, shows Roger Daltrey scolding some fans during a show at Madison Square Garden.
Watch the moment below:
It is not the first time that Roger Daltrey has been irritated with fans smoking marijuana at The Who shows. In 2016, also in the United States, the singer threatened to leave the stage if the consumption of the drug was not interrupted immediately. It was possible to verify that the voice of Daltrey was very changed during the performance in question.
