The Who postpone start of North American tour due to illness

The Who have postponed the launch of their fall North American tour due to illness.

The first four shows of the trek have been delayed on doctor’s orders as Roger Daltrey recovers from an unspecified virus.

Dates affected include the planned tour launch - September 14 at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, CA – as well as a September 16 date at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA, a September 19 show at Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and a September 21 appearance at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.

The band has cancelled their September 18 performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.

The Who Hits 50! tour will resume September 24 at Moda Center in Portland, OR.

Details on the rescheduled dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

On October 7, The Who will premiere the final UK concert appearance of their 50th anniversary farewell tour in cinemas worldwide.

“The Who: Live In Hyde Park” captures the band at the famed London venue on June 26 of this year as they delivered a greatest hits set to 65,000 fans.
