The Who Perform Four Songs At Conference VIDEO

Pete Townshend swore at some Guardian online readers this week (that is the ones that post inane comments below his articles) at a press conference announcing The Who at 50 anniversary tour.

Members of the press gathered at Ronnie Scott’s to hear the welcome news and a fantastic acoustic 4 song set, which can be heard below.

It was during a short Q&A with the two legends afterwards that the outburst came. When asked by a Guardian journalist if we could expect any new material Pete commented ‘Can I comment on that, can I comment, like the c**ts that comment on the Guardian online?’.

“I’ve had to delete my piece now because of it. I don’t care what The Who do. That Pete Townshend is he Islamic, Jesus, the comments.”

The short outburst had the media in stitches and Pete went on to answer the question saying that The Who have 3 new tracks which they are going to record soon. was lucky enough to see the four song set and Q&A which is partly recorded below. Annoyingly the batteries ran our prior to the spat.

Check out the videos below. The acoustic tracks were:
