The Who postpone London shows due to illness

The Who have been forced to postpone a pair of London shows this week due to illness affecting singer Roger Daltrey.

The band’s December 17 and 18 concerts at the 02 Arena have been rescheduled to next spring – March 22 and 23 respectively.

All original tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.

“On medical advice singer Roger Daltrey has been ordered to rest his voice due to a throat infection,” says the group. “The band and their management wish to sincerely apologize to all ticket holders for the inconvenience and disappointment this has caused.”

The London dates were the final pair of concerts on “The Who Hits 50!” 10-date UK tour.

The group will launch a series of North America dates in Tampa, Florida on April 15.
