The Who have postponed the final shows of their 'Who Hits 50' UK tour because Roger Daltrey has a throat infection.
The legendary British group, who were due to perform two sell out concerts at The O2 Arena in London this week, have announced they've rescheduled the dates for next year after the 70-year-old rocker was "ordered to rest his voice."
A spokesperson for the group said: "On medical advice singer Roger Daltrey has been ordered to rest his voice due to a throat infection. The band and their management wish to sincerely apologise to all ticket holders for the inconvenience and disappointment this has caused."
The group's December 17 concert has been moved to March 22, 2015, while their December 18 date has been moved to March 23, 2015.
All original tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.
The rockers released 'Be Lucky' - their first new song in eight years - earlier this year, and Roger recently confirmed they're working on new material.
He said: "It's 50 years on and we have passed the audition. We've done one song and we are going to do a whole album. It's exciting."
The London-born singer, who founded the iconic group, also admitted being in the band is very different these days.
He said: "It's not as rock and roll, it could never be as rock and roll because we are older.
"There's drugs but they are just different - it's now all Imodium and those types."
