(Newser) – The Who may be joining the ranks of recent Super Bowl performers Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, and Prince. A source tells Sports Illustrated the British rockers will play the Feb. 7 halftime show, but an NFL rep says only, “When we have something to announce, we’ll announce it.” The band’s rep tells MTV, “Am afraid at this point we know nothing about it.”
