Roger Daltrey hopes The Who's forthcoming European tour will make up for the long gap since the band last performed there and "relight the fire" among fans.
The rocker is convinced people in the continent have forgotten about the SUBSTITUTE group. But he is confident the new album will capture the imagination of old and new fans alike.
He says, "We haven't played in Europe for a very long time. They have kind of forgotten about The Who. If we can go out and play festival spots and play our hits we can relight the fire.
"It's amazing when young people see the band. We've had an incredible resurgence with young people."
