The Who Postpone Tour After Roger Daltrey Diagnosed with Meningitis

The Who Postpone Tour After Roger Daltrey Diagnosed with Meningitis
It looked like the Who were set to have a triumphant 2015, plotting out a massive 50th anniversary tour to accompany their The Who Hits 50! compilation, but things hit a snag when Roger Daltrey was required to postpone some shows for vocal rest. Now, the singer has been diagnosed with meningitis, forcing the band to delay the remainder of their upcoming shows.
 
"We are very sorry to disappoint our fans in this way," Daltrey said 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."
 
The group are looking to reschedule the tour in 2016. For the time being, though, Canadian fans who were hoping to see the band on their stops in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg or Toronto will have to hold tight.

In a statement, Pete Townshend said, "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."
