    Roger Daltrey (l.) and Pete Townshed of the band The Who perform at the Glastonbury music festival on Sunday, June 28, 2015 at Worthy Farm, Glastonbury, England.

    Fans of The Who in North America are going to have to wait to celebrate the band's 50th anniversary.

    The band announced Friday that it was postponing all 50 dates of "The Who Hits 50!" tour this fall because lead singer Roger Daltrey has contracted viral meningitis. He's feeling better, but says he's under doctors' orders to rest.

    Earlier, the band had postponed the first four gigs of the tour that was to begin this week, hoping Daltrey would be well enough to continue. But when meningitis was diagnosed, the tour was shut down.

    The Who was scheduled to play at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on November 4. Tickets for that show will be honored for new shows whose dates have not yet been announced.

    Guitarist Pete Townshend said the band is rescheduling the tour for next spring.

    "Once Roger is completely well we will come back stronger than ever and Roger and I will give you all a show to remember," Townshend said in a release.
