The band headed out on the road last year (14) for a special The Who Hits 50! world tour to celebrate the group's 50th anniversary and bring the curtain down on its legendary career.
After the start of the trek, which is due to run until November (15), singer Daltrey and guitarist Townshend were struggling to get on while offstage, according to reports in the U.K., but both rockers were annoyed with the speculation as they have never been closer.
