The show will go on for The Who, despite lead singer Roger Daltrey’s recent bout of bronchitis. The band will play in Mexico City on Saturday.
“We just talked to the band’s manager, and he assured us the singer will have recovered and be in good form for the concert,” Rafael Cepeda, spokesman for the concert organizer, said Thursday.
Daltrey abandoned the stage in the middle of his opening song Tuesday in Tampa, Fla., disappointing thousands of fans.
“I just talked to Roger, and he can barely speak,” guitarist Pete Townshend told the crowd. “I tried to get him to come out here, but he’s really, really sick.”
The Tampa concert was rescheduled for March 25.
Saturday’s event will be The Who’s first performance in Mexico.
The band began touring again, after a two-decade absence, with its recent album, “Endless Wire.”
