The Who to play Super Bowl XLIV?


There have been a lot of Who/Super Bowl rumors flying lately.  Sources have said that the British rockers will be this year's featured halftime act, but The Who have so far denied any plans to perform.  But Rolling Stone reported yesterday that an anonymous source has confirmed the performance.

Its expected that the official announcement of halftime performers will come from the NFL on Thanksgiving Day.  A show from The Who would fit in with the classic rock trend of recent years; last year's halftime show came courtesy of Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band.

If this source's claim that "it’s 100 percent the Who," are true, millions of Americans will see the band's surviving members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey playing some of The Who's classics hits such as "My Generation" and "The Kids Are Alright."

Listen up for the announcement next Thursday that will either confirm or deny these rumors.
