This year was supposed to be one of celebration for The Who as Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend hit the road to mark the band’s 50-year existence. Now, though, The Who have been forced to postpone the remainder of their 50th anniversary world tour after Daltrey contracted viral Meningitis.
Daltrey discussed his health, saying, “We are very sorry to disappoint our fans in this way. 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.”
The band plans to return to the road in Spring 2016, with makeup dates to be announced shortly.
Here’s a full list of the postponed dates:
