The Who finale moves into 2016

The Who on Tuesday rescheduled dates for next year in what the rock legends say will be their last tour after lead singer Roger Daltrey fell ill.

Under the new schedule, the final concert for the classic British band will be on May 29 at the Caesars Palace casino in Las Vegas.

The Who had originally planned to end the tour on December 13 this year in Oakland, California.

But the last leg of the marathon tour, which was scheduled to start in early September, was postponed as the 71-year-old Daltrey came down with viral meningitis.

"I am now on the mend and feeling a lot better," Daltrey said in a statement announcing the new dates.

The Who launched a global tour late last year in Abu Dhabi and have already played through Europe and much of North America.

Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend say that it will be The Who's last large-scale tour, although the band may still play one-off concerts.

The Who usually start shows with their classic track "I Can't Explain" and play many of the band's other emblematic hits including "My Generation," "The Kids are Alright" and "Who Are You."
