Who Will Perform At The Super Bowl?

The answer to that question is, YES! This past weekend began the NFL playoffs, with each team reaching for that dream of being crowned the 2010 NFL World Champions and Super Bowl Sunday has become an unofficial sports holiday. Some people are glued to the television for the game, while others wait anxiously for the commercials. But everybody comes together to watch the Super Bowl Half-time Show. Past years have featured classic rock legends Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen and this year will be no different. The Who will take center stage at this year's Super Bowl Half-time show.

Lead singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend are the only two remaining original members of the band, but that does not take away from the energy this band puts out. Since 1996 the band has performed together in some capacity with 2006 seeing the group's first album in 24 years. Every band that has performed at the Super Bowl has seen an increase in music sales following the event. The Who have a busy year ahead of them, with a new album in the works as well as a world tour and Pete Townshend has been hard at work on his next musical entitled "Floss".

With only 20 minutes to work with, the show is usually filled with the band's greatest hits, but it's enough to remind people just how good some of these bands still are. So, when someone asks "Who's performing this year's Super Bowl half-time show?" You can just respond "Yes!"
