The Who are ready to tour again after having cancelled several dates due to Roger Daltrey’s bout with meningitis.

The legendary rock band is scheduled to tour North America in celebration of its 50th anniversary beginning in February.

Last Friday, the band was forced to cancel 50 dates of “The Who Hits 50!” once Daltrey was officially diagnosed with meningitis.

If you want to see The Who, this is your chance, because Daltrey told Rolling Stone in 2013 that this is the group’s “last big tour.”

Guitarist Pete Townsend said in a statement that the band “will be coming back stronger than ever!” for this tour.

While Daltrey said, “I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better.”

The band will hit New York in March and close out the tour at the end of May in Las Vegas.
