The Who forced to pull US date

Band walk off after Roger Daltrey gets sick

The Who were forced to cancel a gig in America last night (March 13) after singer Roger Daltrey was struck down with bronchitis.

The rock veterans managed to get through just one song at the Ford Ampitheatre in Tampa before the frontman was forced to retire.

Speaking from the stage after cancelling the gig, guitarist Pete Townshend said: “I just talked to Roger and he can barely speak. I tried to get him to come out here, but he’s really, really sick.”

The gig is set to rescheduled for March 25, reports Yahoo News.
