Veteran rocker Pete Townshend is nervous about performing the The Who's first new song in 20 years in front of an audience. The Who launched their latest tour at the weekend (17JUN06) and guitarist Townshend admits to being apprehensive about how Wire + GLASS will be received. He writes on his website: "We haven't played anything new for such a long time. This selection is 11 minutes long. "We will blast through it, and if the crowd get distracted they can buy our fabulous merchandising."
