The Who has officially postponed their upcoming tour of the U.K. and Ireland due to concerns around the spread of coronavirus.

In a statement, the band said, “After serious consideration, it is with much regret that The Who have postponed their UK and Ireland Tour, due to start next Monday, March 16th in Manchester at the Manchester Arena and finishing at Wembley SSE Arena on April 8th. The fans’ safety is paramount and given the developing Coronavirus situation, the band felt that they had no option but to postpone the shows. The dates will be rescheduled for later in the year. All tickets will be honored.”

The shows postponed also include the annual Teenage Cancer Trust benefit at Royal Albert Hall on March 28, but that will be rescheduled at a later date.
