Daltrey told Rolling Stone in 2013 that this “will be the last big tour” for the veteran rockers.
The band hit some U.S. cities in April and May, but still have New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and more to check off. Tickets purchased for the original dates will be honored for the new dates. The tour was indefinitely postponed on Sept. 18.
