If you were looking forward to finally seeing The Who in concert, you’re going to have to look a little more forward.
The band announced this morning that they’re postponing all upcoming North American tour dates, following front man Roger Daltrey’s diagnosis with viral Meningitis.
The Who were set to perform at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena September 29 as part of their 50th anniversary tour.
“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,” Daltrey said in a press release on the band’s website. “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 initially announced the postponing of four shows earlier in the tour after Daltrey came down with what they called a “mystery virus.” After being diagnosed with viral Meningitis, doctor’s suggested a period of rest.
All tickets will be honoured for the new dates, which will be announced on the band’s website.
