The Who's Pete Townshend has revealed that the band will stage another 'Quadrophenia' tour next year.

He broke the news to fans over the band's website: ''The reason I am not on the road with Roger is that this is entirely Roger's adventure, one that is bringing him great joy. I don't belong on this Tommy tour. I wish him well, sincerely, and I look forward to playing with Roger again doing Quadrophenia next year."

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Townshend also revealed why he is not on the current 'Tommy' tour: ''Pete is having terrible hearing problems at the moment. I don't want to be on stage with him destroying the last bit of his hearing. That would be completely foolish. He's a composer."

Meanwhile, The Who's Roger Daltrey has slammed U2 over claims that they are tax evaders.
