London Olympics: The Who Stars Roger Daltrey And Pete Townshend Promise 'Fabulous End For The Olympics'

The Who stars Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are so impressed with the "medley" they've created for the closing ceremony of the London Olympics, they don't think the world's greatest performers could pull it off.

The rockers have been working on the spectacular for months and Daltrey insists it will stun the world when they premiere it next month.

He says, "It is a great finale to the event because it's not a rock show... We've done it for 50 years but because there's athletics there all day, the technical issues are just so (different).

"We have recorded a piece of music which I think is a fabulous end for the Olympics; just showing the greatness that's come out of this country. This country has put some fabulous music into the world. This is not about The Who being on a TV show for the Olympics. It's about making great music that is apropos to that event where you've had people who've given years of their lives to be there on that field... The music we've come up with is a great representation of that."

And guitar great Townshend is convinced the one-off will impress even the greatest modern performers, adding, "It would be difficult for Madonna to do... I suppose you might call it a medley but it's a very carefully structured thematic piece."
