Fans of The Who will still get a chance to see the band in Canada as the band relaunches its tour in late February. 

Earlier this month, the band postponed the North American fall leg of its The Who Hits 50! tour after Roger Daltrey contracted viral meningitis.

But on the band's website, Roger Daltrey is quoted as saying, "I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better."

The Who website said tickets for the Toronto Oct. 19 show will be honoured on the March 1 date. Tickets for the Dec. 1 show will be honoured at the Apr. 26 performance.
