The Who will return to the United States on November 15 for a three-week tour on the college circuit. Plans have also been made for them to fly to New York on or about February 20 to start a five-week string of appearances throughout the country.

"Ours is a group with a built-in hate," the Who says, "Sometimes you will just be getting really musically involved and some stupid girl with 'Freddie' tattooed on her front will come up and cry 'Ringo.' You feel like smashing her with Coke bottles."
