The Who will rock the Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show on Sunday and fans will be able to rock the same set on Rock Band soon after.

The game’s makers, Cambridge-based Harmonix and MTV Games, announced yesterday that a special recording of the performance The Who plans to play during the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show will be made available following the game to purchase.  “The Who Super Bowl S-mashup” will be available in the Rock Band Music Store for $1.99 immediately after the game on Xbox 360 and Wii, with PlayStation3 to follow soon after.

Scheduled to headline the halftime show during the Indianapolis Colts vs. New Orleans Saints Super Bowl showdown at Sun Life Stadium in South Florida on Sunday, February 7, The Who have commemorated this historic event by recording a special version of the performance they plan to play at the game. Fans can expect the short set to include a medley of the band’s classic hits including “Baba O’Riley”, “Pinball Wizard”, “Tommy”, “Who Are You” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again”.

In related news, during a press conference this week, the band declared they had no plans to tour this summer due to health reasons.
