Townshend To Test His Hearing Onstage In LondonBy WENN
Thursday, February 18, 2010
THE WHO’s future rests on new in-ear monitors which will help tinnitus sufferer PETE TOWNSHEND overcome hearing issues during live shows.
The rocker was introduced to the new technology by pal Neil Young’s audiologist and he’s planning to test the equipment when The Who perform their Quadrophenia concept album at a charity show in London at the end of March (10).
If it works for him, the band could be back on the road by the end of 2010.
Bandmate Roger Daltrey says, “It’s a good test for Pete’s hearing. We won’t know until we try.”
