I should have posted this a few days ago.  Sounds a great idea.

The Who have decided to hit the road this summer without Pete Townshend and 
Roger Daltrey. Townshend, who showcased his trim tummy on the Super Bowl 
will instead focus on a Jenny Craig song cycle, while it'll be all Rock Camp 
all the time for Daltrey.

The Who will tour sheds late in the summer and early fall led by Townshend's 
younger brother, guitarist Simon Townshend, who has toured with The Who for 
almost two decades. Townshend (Simon), will be joined by John "Rabbit" 
Bundrick, who has played keyboards with The Who for over 30 years. Townshend 
(Simon), explains that the setlists will focus on the early Motown and James 
Brown material that the band had championed in the early 1960s. "I would 
like to show people what The Who could have become without that Mod 
influence that Pete so dearly loved," said Townshend. "I think they could 
have really been one of the great girl groups of the 60s."
