AEG Enters into Agreement with Pogo Seat

THE WHO today confirmed that they are postponing all remaining dates on their “THE WHO HITS 50!” North American tour. They had initially postponed FOUR shows on doctors orders after Roger Daltrey contracted a mystery virus. Initially it was hoped that the rest of the tour might proceed, but after extensive tests the seriousness of his condition became apparent when doctors diagnosed Roger as having viral Meningitis and prescribed a period of rest. The band apologize to fans and realize that the postponement will cause an inconvenience for ticketholders. It wasn't a decision taken lightly--THE WHO always give their fans 100% and we’re never going to compromise the show, but ultimately the band had no alternative but to postpone the tour. Roger was particularly disappointed as he had been especially looking forward to the Teenage Cancer America benefit in Los Angeles, a charity that he and THE WHO have worked tirelessly for. Thankfully he is already getting better and said, "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.” Pete Townshend added, “We are rescheduling all the shows for next Spring 2016. We apologize to all our fans who have supported us in the last 50 years. Once Roger is completely well we will come back stronger than ever and Roger and I will give you all a show to remember.” The tour dates being postponed are as follows: DATE CITY VENUE Mon 9/14 San Diego, CA Valley View Casino Center Wed 9/16 Anaheim, CA Honda Center Sat 9/19 Las Vegas, NV Colosseum at Caesars Palace Mon 9/21 Los Angeles, CA STAPLES Center Thu 9/24 Portland, OR Moda Center Sun 9/27 Seattle, WA KeyArena at Seattle Center Tue 9/29 Vancouver, BC Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena Thu 10/1 Calgary, AB Scotiabank Saddledome Sat 10/3 Edmonton, AB Rexall Place Tue 10/6 Saskatoon, SK SaskTel Centre Thu 10/8 Winnipeg, MB MTS Centre Sat 10/10 Minneapolis, MN Target Center Tue 10/13 Milwaukee, WI BMO Harris Bradley Center Thu 10/15 Chicago, IL United Center Sat 10/17 Detroit, MI Joe Louis Arena Mon 10/19 Toronto, ON Air Canada Centre Fri 10/23 Pittsburgh, PA CONSOL Energy Center Sun 10/25 Newark, NJ Prudential Center Tue 10/27 New York, NY Madison Square Garden Thu 10/29 Boston, MA TD Garden Sun 11/1 Washington, DC Verizon Center Wed 11/4 Philadelphia, PA Wells Fargo Center Tue 12/1 Toronto, ON Air Canada Centre Fri 12/4 Louisville, KY KFC Yum!
