The WHO cancel US tour

News that impacts Simon Townshend directly, as the Who cancel their upcoming tour...

SKY NEWS reports: "The Who have cancelled their entire North American tour after frontman Roger Daltrey was diagnosed with viral meningitis."

The British band had already delayed the first four concerts of their anniversary tour The Who Hits 50! because the 71-year-old singer had fallen ill.

A statement on the group's website said: "The band apologise to fans and realise that the postponement will cause an inconvenience for ticketholders.

"It wasn't a decision taken lightly - The Who always give their fans 100% and were never going to compromise the show, but ultimately the band had no alternative but to postpone the tour."

Daltrey also revealed: "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."

Bandmate Pete Townshend added: "We are rescheduling all the shows for next spring 2016.

"Once Roger is completely well we will come back stronger than ever and Roger and I will give you all a show to remember."

The website said tickets for the original dates will be honoured for the new shows.
