The Who have announced the rescheduled dates for their axed fall tour, now kicking off in February 2016.

The band said Tuesday that "The Who Hits 50!" tour will start Feb. 27 in Detroit. The band's fall tour was canceled this month as lead singer Roger Daltrey recovers from viral meningitis.

The tour was originally set to kick off on Sept. 14 in San Diego.

Daltrey said in a statement that "I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better." Guitarist Pete Townshend added that the band "will be coming back stronger than ever!"

Tickets for the originally scheduled shows will be honored at the new dates.

The San Diego show was rescheduled for May 27 at Valley View Casino Center.

The tour, celebrating The Who's 50th anniversary, also will visit New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. It wraps on May 29 in Las Vegas.
