The Who plans to return to Chicago next year for a postponed concert.

The band said Tuesday that “The Who Hits 50!” tour, originally scheduled for this fall, will start Feb. 27 in Detroit. The tour was canceled this month as lead singer Roger Daltrey recovers from viral meningitis.

Daltrey said in a statement that “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 original United Center date of Oct. 15 will be honored on the new date, March 10.

The tour, celebrating the Who’s 50th anniversary, also will visit New York, Los Angeles and Toronto. It wraps on May 29 in Las Vegas.
