The Who Reschedule Tour for 2016
Two weeks after the Who cut short their Who Hits 50! Tour due to singer Roger Daltrey's health issues, the band has rescheduled their postponed dates for next year. The tour will resume in Detroit on Feb. 27 and play dates New York, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Los Angeles before wrapping up in Las Vegas on May 29.
You can see a complete list of the rescheduled dates below. Tickets will be honored from the original concerts at these new shows.
The Who was forced off the road on Sept. 18, when doctors ordered Daltrey to rest after a bout with viral meningitis. It wasn't the first time the tour, which is being billed as a celebration of the Who's 50 years together, has been derailed by the singer's health. Early on, a pair of London shows were postponed after Daltrey came down with a throat infection.
"I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better," Daltrey said in a press release announcing the new dates. Added guitarist Pete Townshend, "We will be starting our rescheduled shows in March and will be coming back stronger than ever!"
In the meantime, fans can still see the Who -- albeit on a giant movie screen and for one night only -- when The Who in Hyde Park shows at movie theaters across the U.S. on Oct. 8. You can find a whole mess of information about the film at the official site.
