The Who cancel US tour as Roger Daltrey battles meningitis.

If you were looking forward to seeing The Who Hits 50! tour bringing the two remaining members of legendary British rockers The Who — singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend — to Vancouver on Sept. 29 at Rogers Arena, you’ll have to hold on to that ticket for a little longer. “We are very sorry to disappoint our fans in this way,” Daltrey said in a press release. “For the last four weeks, I have been in and out of the hospital and have been diagnosed with viral meningitis. Singer Roger Daltrey’s health has forced The Who to postpone a planned North American tour that included a stop in Philadelphia on Nov. 4 at the Wells Fargo Center. At the start of the month (September 9) the band cancelled four dates of the tour, citing a ‘mysterious illness’ contracted by frontman Roger Daltrey as the cause.

The doctors tell me I will make a complete recovery, but that I should not do any touring this year.” “We are rescheduling all the shows for next Spring 2016,” Townshend added. “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.” “I think I will stop after this year. When this tour is over, we’ll probably both go our separate ways,” Townshend previously told Mojo. “So it’s to demonstrate that even this particular gang can grow old – not necessarily gracefully, but can grow old ungracefully, or whatever it is that we’re doing.”
