The Who recently hit its 50th anniversary and while many in the UK were excited to hear the band would be touring there again later this year, fans worldwide got something exciting to look forward to as well. Who guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend said at the press conference in London that he and singer Roger Daltrey would collaborate on a new record that Townshend has already provided three new demos for. The new album would be the first since The Who's 2006 release Endless Wire.

Townshend explained that the new album would be approached in a more "basic" way, but not as "basic," he said, as his recent collaboration Going Back Home with ex-Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson, which was recorded in ten days. The band said the tour was equivalent to that of their "farewell," but they would continue to write and record. As well as give some insight to The Who's future plans, Townshend and Daltrey performed a four-song acoustic set at the press conference, before answering questions from the audience of journalists and running a short film showing the band performing through its half-century career.

The Who

Another Super Bowl, another performance from a classic rock icon. Sports Illustrated is reporting this year's halftime spectacular will feature the Who. That's right -- Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and company will provide the musical fireworks when the game hits Miami on Feb. 7.

Ever since the infamous Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake wardrobe malfunction in 2004, the NFL has gone with "veteran" acts and turned the reins over to one band or artist. Prior to that, there were often medleys and multiple acts, like No Doubt, Sting and Shania Twain in 2003 and the 2001 show that saw Aerosmith rocking 'Walk This Way' with Britney Spears and Timberlake.

The Who certainly fit the newer mold, proving worthy successors to the recent run of Paul McCartney (2005), the Rolling Stones (2006), Prince (2007), Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (2008) and this year's performance by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

With the matchup still far from decided, one thing is for certain -- a stadium of 80,000 people rocking out to 'Won't Get Fooled Again' will sound great no matter what. (Spinner.com)
