THE WHO PLAY PRIVATE GIG IN L.A.

According to REUTERS, The Who are playing a private show at a historic 
theatre in Los Angeles this evening to help promote the "Rock Band" video 
game.

The party and concert, organized by the game's developer Harmonix Music 
Systems and publisher MTV Games, will take place at the 82-year-old Orpheum 
Theatre, which holds about 2,000 people.

The Who's 1971 anthem "Won't Get Fooled Again" is among the 58 tracks on the 
set list of "Rock Band," which was released to great acclaim late last year.

The Who's Management confirmed the gig is happening and that it's not open 
to the public, nor even to 'Official Wholigans', subscribers to thewho.com.

The band played its first U.S. show in more than a year on Saturday, during 
a taping of VH1's annual "Rock Honors" show. A handful of younger bands, 
including Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters, covered Who songs, and then the 
guests of honor took to the stage for an hour to dust off classics such as 
"Baba O'Riley" and "My Generation." Highlights will air on the cable channel 
on Thursday.
