So back to the app, this app is now here to help us all relive the past 50 years, whether we are new or old fans, in this awesome 3D interactive experience, so we can get right into the feel of the music over the last 50 years and really feel like we are there living it!

The 3D virtual world has all the famous moments and landmarks from The Who’s career – with tracks, audio streams and video.

They appear to be constantly updating the app, the last update was yesterday and they say that you will be able to play songs from your iTunes library within the app.

“I’m not a fan of smartphones but have to admit they do open up huge possibilities to entertain and educate. The Music business needs to use every avenue possible to keep the fans and the music in close contact. This app will hopefully teach our newer, younger fans everything they might want to know of our history, and hopefully unearth some odds and sods for our older ones.” – Roger Daltrey.
