Who Considering 2011 Tour

Previous suggestions that the Who might call it quits due to Pete Townshend's hearing problems were followed by Roger Daltrey raising the possibility that he would carry on without the guitarist. The Who without Keith Moon and John Entwistle was already problematic for some.  Using the Who name without Townshend would be as tough a sell as Mick Jagger trying to convince fans that a band without Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ron Wood should be considered the Rolling StonesDaltrey now tells Billboard that he and Townshend are talking about mounting a 2011 tour that the singer describes as 'a new show'. or perhaps a run of dates featuring Quadrophenia.  Telling the industry source that he and Townshend share the conviction that musicians and other artists should '...go all the way through life 'til you can't do it anymore', Daltrey said they are looking into ways to minimize the discomfort and damage continuing to play live would result in to Townshend during a Who tour.
