NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. _ 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 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 drinks.

The Who had canceled a show at San Antonio, and also postponed appearances at Mexico City and Tampa.
