The Who will relaunch their “Who Hits 50!” North American tour on February 27th, 2016 at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, resuming a massive trek that was canceled earlier this month after singer Roger Daltrey fell ill.

“We will be starting our rescheduled shows in March and will be coming back stronger than ever!” guitarist Pete Townshend said in a statement.

After initially postponing four dates — as well as their September 17th slot at the iHeartRadio Festival — the Who called off their fall trek to allow Daltrey the chance to recover from viral meningitis.

“I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better, but I am going to need a considerable time to recover,” Daltrey said at the time. “The doctors tell me I will make a complete recovery, but that I should not do any touring this year.”

As promised, all original ticket purchases will be honored at the rescheduled dates. The only note, per a statement, was that tickets for the October 19th show in Toronto will be accepted at the March 1st show, while those for the December 1st gig in Toronto will be honored at the April 26th performance. A complete list of dates is available below.

Tickets and VIP packages are available via the Who’s website. Citi cardmembers will also be able to purchase tickets for U.S. dates via Citi’s Private Pass Program.

Daltrey described the “Who Hits 50!” trek as “the beginning of a long goodbye.” The show featured a setlist spanning the band’s entire 50-year history — a mix that Townshend dubbed “Hits, Picks, Mixes and Misses.”
