The Who have announced the rescheduled dates for their The Who Hits 50! North American tour, which was postponed earlier this month following news that Roger Daltrey was diagnosed with viral meningitis.
The 2016 dates begin February 27 in Detroit, with shows running to the end of May.
"I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better," says Daltrey.
"We will be starting our rescheduled shows in March,” adds Pete Townshend, “and will be coming back stronger than ever!”
Tickets for the originally scheduled shows will be honoured at the new dates.
On October 7, the band will premiere their concert film, “The Who: Live In Hyde Park”, in cinemas worldwide.
The project captures The Who at the famed London venue earlier this year as they delivered the final UK concert appearance of their 50th anniversary farewell tour.
