The Who resumed its North American tour 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 30 minutes 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 an acoustic encore. Throughout the show, the 63-year-old singer could be seen coughing while away from the microphone, and sipping drinks.
The Who canceled a show Tuesday in San Antonio, and also postponed appearances in Mexico City and Tampa, Fla.
