-- NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Who resumed its North American tour Thursday after lead singer Roger Daltrey returned from a near-weeklong bout with bronchitis.
“Boy, it feels good to be out of bed,” Daltrey said about a half-hour into The Who’s concert Thursday night at Alltel Arena.
Daltrey sang all but one song in a 95-minute set, resting his voice only when guitarist Pete Townshend sang “Eminence Front.”
The band returned for an 18-minute encore, a medley of songs from the rock opera “Tommy,” and Daltrey then stayed onstage for a second, acoustic encore. Throughout the show, Daltrey could be seen coughing while away from the microphone, and sipping drinks.
The Who canceled a show Tuesday at San Antonio, and also postponed appearances at Mexico City and Tampa.
