The Who postponed concerts scheduled for Friday in Dallas and Sunday in Denver after lead singer Roger Daltrey lost his voice.

The band cut short a Houston concert midway through the event on Wednesday.

The legendary British rock group was eight songs into the Wednesday night concert when Daltrey told the audience, "I think I should quit while I'm ahead." Lead guitarist Pete Townshend apologized, saying Daltrey "cannot actually speak now." He promised the crowd that the band would honor their tickets at a make-good concert still to be scheduled.

No reschedule date has been set.

The 75-year-old Daltrey and 74-year-old Townshend are the last original members with the band, which formed 55 years ago.
