Another person unwilling to reveal their name has told another publication that The Who will indeed perform at Super Bowl XLIV, adding to the anticipation of the NFL’s (and the band’s) apparently-pending official announcement.
“It’s 100 percent the Who,” a source tied to the performance told Rolling Stone. “They signed a long time ago.”
Sports Illustrated columnist Jimmy Traina first broke the news last Thursday, Nov. 12. In response to this, plus the slew of others that followed, The Who posted a note on its official website calling the rumors “pure speculation.” That note has since been taken down.
As another source told Rolling Stone, an official announcement will be made on Thanksgiving Day. Let’s hear it for journalism!
