I NORTH LITTLE ROCK. Ark
(AP) -- The Who resumed its
North American tour Thursday
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 a half-
hour 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 a second,
acoustic encore. Throughout
the show, Daltrey could be seen
coughing while away from the
microphone, and sipping

dunks.
The Who canceled a show

Tilesday at San Antonio and
also postponed appearances at
Mexico City and Tampa
