The Who Postpone 50th Anniversary Tour Due to Illness



The Who have postponed the remaining dates of its THE WHO HITS 50! North American tour due to vocalist Roger Daltrey being diagnosed with viral Meningitis.

“We are very sorry to disappoint our fans in this way,” said Daltrey in a statement. “For the last four weeks, I have been in and out of the hospital and have been diagnosed with viral Meningitis. I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better but I am going to need a considerable time to recover.  The doctors tell me I will make a complete recovery, but that I should not do any touring this year.”

Added Pete Townshend: “We are rescheduling all the shows for next Spring 2016. We apologize to all our fans who have supported us in the last 50 years. Once Roger is completely well we will come back stronger than ever and Roger and I will give you all a show to remember.”
