Roger Daltrey

We can now confirm that Roger Daltrey is officially performing the grand opening of the Music Tunnel on Tuesday 25th May.

This is the press release that was issued today -

‘The Who’ Front man to Unveil Music Tunnel.

An artistic memorial to a historic Brighton music venue and music artists associated with the city is to be unveiled by ‘The Who’ front man Roger Daltrey

‘The Who’ were just one of numerous legendary bands who took the stage at ‘The Florida Rooms’, one of Brighton’s hottest music venues back in the 60s once located in the building that is now the Brighton ‘Sea Life Centre’. The 80-foot-pedestrian tunnel linking the Centre to the beach-side of Marine Parade is being given a unique artistic makeover featuring music artists past and present closely associated with the city in the form of a mural art

Roger Daltrey has fond memories of regular Wednesday night sessions at The Florida Rooms when admission was 1s 6d and was delighted to be asked to open what will become known as ‘The Brighton Music Tunnel’

“This is a follow-up to the successful ‘Walk of Fame’ and perhaps a long overdue acknowledgement of the impact Brighton has had on popular music,” said ‘Walk of Fame’ Founder David Courtney

Art Students from the University of Brighton have been hard at work painting their tribute to the stars of the Brighton music scene, and their finished work will be officially unveiled by Roger Daltrey at 12 noon on Tuesday 25th May

Others depicted include Norman Cook (Fat Boy Slim), and his wife Zoe Ball; Adam Faith, Leo Sayer, Sir Paul McCartney, Gary Moore, Abba, Dusty Springfield, James Morrison, The Levellers and Nick Cave.

“A previously dull and featureless subway tunnel has effectively been transformed into a spectacle that every Brighton visitor will want to see,” said Sea Life Boss Max Leviston
