"Given the concerns about public gatherings, we couldn’t go ahead..."

Rock legends The Who have postponed their upcoming UK shows.

The band were due to play a selection of arena dates, alongside an appearance at London's Royal Albert Hall as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust series.

Sadly, concerns over coronavirus have caused the iconic group to postpone the dates, while reassuring fans that they will definitely go ahead when the dust settles.

Frontman Roger Daltrey - a patron of Teenage Cancer Trust - was obviously deeply disappointed about the outcome, saying that the shows “definitely happen and it may be the last time we do a tour of this type, so keep those tickets, as the shows will be fantastic...”

Guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend added that the band "haven't reached this decision easily, but given the concerns about public gatherings, we couldn’t go ahead."
