Roger Daltrey’s viral meningitis causes cancellation of entire tour by The Who this fall. They will reschedule for next spring. Ironic since Daltrey is the one always fit and never took drugs or did anything untoward. Let’s send him prayers and good wishes.
Daltrey says in a statement: “We are very sorry to disappoint our fans in this way. 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.”
The Who had cancelled just a few dates prior to this citing Daltrey’s “mystery virus.” Who’s Next? Hopefully, no one.
