The Who's Roger Daltrey raps gig-goers on their mobile phones

By Anthony Barnes

The Who's frontman Roger Daltrey has criticised gig-goers who spend their time at gigs engrossed in their mobile phones rather than actually watching the show.

The 70-year-old singer said it was "weird" that people did not have their mind on the show when they had gone to a performance and were concentrating on staring at the screen rather than the artist on stage.

Daltrey, who launched his band's 50th anniversary tour yesterday, admitted he struggled to understand why they were not watching the show.

He said: "I feel sorry for them, I really feel sorry for them. Looking at life through a screen and not being in the moment totally – if you're doing that, you're 50% there right? It's weird. I find it weird."
