Who Making 2011 Plans

Roger Daltrey was not specific about what he and Pete Townshend are planning for 2011, but he was willing to tie it to something '...based around a past work', and made mention of Tommy and QuadropheniaDaltrey, speaking for a fan forum feature on the Who web site, also suggested that their approach to live performing will be different in the future, saying, 'The whole music business has been through a seismic shift, so we're looking at new ways of doing it.'  That could mean that the band will simulcast concerts to venues throughout the world rather than mount an extensive tour, something Daltrey says they are unlikely to do.  If they do tour, he wants to devote some shows to specific albums.  He singled out the group's landmark concept albums, Tommy and Quadrophenia, but noted that he's not confident he has the vocal range to do justice to some of the songs on the 1969 Rock Opera.  He also said that Townshend has been working on some new material.
