The Who have rescheduled their North American tour for February 2016.

Earlier this month the 'Baba O'Riley' hitmakers postponed their remaining shows after lead singer Roger Daltrey was struck down with viral Meningitis.

However, they have now confirmed that 'The Who Hits 50!' tour will resume on February 27 in Detroit.

Daltrey said in a statement: ''I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better.''

Guitarist Pete Townshend added that the band ''will be coming back stronger than ever!''

Tickets for the originally scheduled shows will be valid for the new dates.

Earlier this month, Roger announced that they were postponing the shows and explained: ''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 added: '' Once Roger is completely well we will come back stronger than ever and Roger and I will give you all a show to remember.''
