Report: The Who will perform at Super Bowl
Booked for halftime show on Feb. 7, according to SI.comNEW YORK -- According to a report, the Who will perform at Super Bowl XLIV, marking their first performance in North America since 2008.
SI.com reports that the veteran U.K. band will take the stage during the halftime show of the 2010 NFL championship game, scheduled for Feb. 7 in Miami.
The NFL has yet to officially confirm the report, saying, "When we have something to announce, we'll announce it."
During a recent stop on his "Use It or Lose It" solo tour, frontman Roger Daltrey told Billboard.com that he and bandmate/composer Pete Townshend were working on new material for the Who's followup to 2006's "Endless Wire."
"Hopefully if this tour has done it's job, I'll be in really good form as a vocalist," said Daltrey. "And who knows, we might make our best work."
Townshend has also acknowledged working on two projects -- a new musical called "Floss" and the Who's next album, which he has said will include some pieces from the "Floss" project.
