It’s looking as though the Who’s New York City benefit concert tomorrow night (February 28th) in New York City will see the band dip into their back catalogue. Elvis Costello is also on the bill at Manhattan’s Theater At Madison Square Garden for the Teen Cancer America Benefit. According to fan posts from, guitarist Simon Townshend has posted on Facebook and told fans that some key classics absent from the current tour will get an airing, including “You Better You Bet,” “The Kids Are Alright,” and “I Can See For Miles” — which the Who hasn’t performed live since 1989.

Simon, who’s Pete Townshend’s younger brother, is currently out promoting his new album, Looking Out Looking In. We asked him if he found it tedious having to play such a powerful and rigid piece as Quadrophenia night after night: “Well, it’s cool when the music’s that good. I think if the music wasn’t that good, it would just become a day job, being onstage having to do everything so rigidly. Yeah, it could become mundane in other bands, but in the Who it doesn’t. Anything can happen (laughs) anytime.”
