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 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 US 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 including two songs from Largo, a little-known 1998 album which Daltrey has specified onstage.[3] 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"[4] and The Who's "The Real Me" and "Bargain".[5] 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.
