Earlier this year, rock gods, the Who had to postpone the first four gigs of a tour that was going to take the band through the whole of North America. This was due to singer Roger Daltrey not being able to sing. Eventually, he was diagnosed with viral meningitis and the tour was completely shut down.
Today, Oct 12th, Daltrey released a statement on the band’s official website saying, “I’d like to say a big thank you to all you Who fans for your kind wishes following my recent bout of viral meningitis. The good news is that I’m now out of hospital and on the mend, although it’s going to be a slow process but – I WILL be back! Both me and Pete are looking forward to seeing you all at the rescheduled shows in the new year. Be happy, be healthy, be lucky!”
Without doubt, the best news we’ve heard all day.
Glad to see you’re feeling better, Roger and we’ll see you very soon.
