Pete Townshend says that by next year his band, The Who, will embark on a tour following "a very, very cool" surprise announcement in June. Per a Christmas Eve online diary post (http://www.petetownshend.co.uk/) titled "I will go on tour...," the band's driving creative force said all of the shows may be viewable online.
There Townshend wrote "I have high hopes for the whole tour to be shared to a wide audience at home in a mixture of pay-per-view and free special Web casts. Some of the proceeds will go to charity, of course." Despite the tour has yet mentioned date, Townshend said he expected to unveil some new material on the road.
