Roger Daltrey and members of The Who graced the stage like rock royalty Sunday night to a sold-out house at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles.

Daltrey, a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and founder of the iconic rock band The Who, has been playing a series of summer solo shows.

On Sunday, Daltrey was joined on stage by current Who band members Simon Townshend, brother to Pete Townshend, and other members Jon Button, Scott Devours, Loren Gold and Frank Simes.

Daltrey performed Who hits, rarities and songs from his new album to the likes of "Pinball Wizard," "Behind Blue Eyes," "I Can See for Miles" and a solo, "As Long As I Have You,” plus many more.

Daltrey has sold more than 100 million records and has played thousands of gigs in a career spanning more than 50 years, including venues such as Woodstock, the Monterey Pop Festival, Hyde Park, Shea Stadium, the Isle of Wight, the Super Bowl, Wimbledon Stadium and Live Aid, just to name a few.

Daltrey has raised tens of millions of dollars for charity all over the world, including during Sunday night's concert, where Daltrey was selling his latest CD with proceeds going to a charity that Daltrey started about three years ago called Teen Cancer America.

In closing, the concert was a stellar performace by far, and what better place to have a concert than one of the best venues on the Central Coast, with a glass of wine on a warm summer night?

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
