And then there were two. But it doesn’t seem to be any kind of block of carrying on as The Who either in the studio or on the road.
According to Pete Townshend, writing on his website www.petetownshend.co.uk, what’s left of the group will be hitting the road this year for an extensive worldwide tour.
"There will be a tour," he said. "We already have European festival dates slotted in June and July."
After the festival dates, The Who will then start an extensive North American tour which will run from September and December. This will be folowed by shows covering the rest of the world.
Townshend also revealed that a new album from The Who would appear in the near future.
He said: "There will be a new CD sometime in the early summer. I know I’ve cried wolf a few times, but this time I have committed because I have about enough music for a new CD, and I’m still producing."
I saw them on their last UK tour and they were actually very good. But down to two members and still carrying on? Personally I’m not convinced.
