Roger Daltry Rocks Out With TOMMY's 'Pinball Wizard' At Live ShowIconic rock superstar Roger Daltry revisited a classic showstopper from the revolutionary rock opera THE WHO'S TOMMY at a live gig earlier this week and a performance clip of the energetic new take on the tune is now available to view.

"He's a pinball wizard / There has to be a twist / A pinball wizard / He's got such a supple wrist," Daltry impressively wails more than 45 years after the album's premiere in the new clip.

"Pinball Wizard" is one of many memorable showstoppers from the classic The Who album and subsequent feature film and Tony Award-winning Broadway adaptation of TOMMY.

Of note, Daltry was joined by fellow The Who bandmate Pete Townshend's son, Simon, at the live concert in Philadelphia on July 28.
