NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) The Who resumes its North American tour in Arkansas after lead singer Roger Daltrey returned from a near-weeklong bout with bronchitis.

The rock band is scheduled to play Friday night at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City.

Daltrey sang all but one song in a 95-minute set last night at the band's concert in North Little Rock, 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 an acoustic encore.

Throughout the show, the 63-year-old Daltrey could be seen coughing while away from the microphone, and sipping drinks.

The Who canceled a show earlier this week in San Antonio, and also postponed appearances at Mexico City and Tampa, Florida.
