The Who are one of THOSE bands. Those huge bands that make amazing music, influence generations, tour for years and continue to be relevant half a century after they originally formed. There aren’t many of those bands.
Proof of their continued draw and appeal: the legendary British rockers are performing Sunday during the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show when the Indianapolis Colts take on the New Orleans Saints. Go sports! We’re making the specially recorded “The Who Super Bowl S-mashup” available in the Rock Band Music Store immediately after the game ends. Want to know what songs? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see!
“The Who Super Bowl S-mashup” joins 15 previously released tracks from The Who available in the Rock Band Music Library, including “Won’t Get Fooled Again” featured on-disc for Rock Band, “Pinball Wizard” featured on-disc for Rock Band 2, as well as “Amazing Journey,” “Baba O’Riley,” “Behind Blue Eyes,” “Eminence Front,” “Going Mobile,” “Leaving Here,” “Magic Bus,” “My Generation,” “Real Good Looking Boy,” “Sea and Sand,” “Summertime Blues,” “Who Are You” and “Young Man Blues,” featured as downloadable content in the Rock Band Music Store.
“The Who Super Bowl S-mashup” will be available for purchase for $1.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and $2 on the Wii. The medley will be available following the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 on Xbox 360 and Wii and will be coming soon to PlayStation3.
