During Fox Sports’ coverage of the 2012 World Series, in which the National League’s San Francisco Giants take on the Detroit Tigers, viewers will hear songs by The Who. Via a deal between Fox Sports and Spirit Music, which publishes The Who’s music, the World Series broadcast features a variety of the band’s hits from a lot of albums. “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” “Baba O’Riley,” “Pinball Wizard,” “Who Are You” and “Behind Blue Eyes” will air both in their original versions and as re-mixes.

The music tie-in supports a 36-city U.S. tour starting early November in Sunrise, Fla. The band will focus on Quadraphenia, its operatic ode to the mods. “We’re excited to be taking a fresh look at Quadrophenia, and expect this will be a very modern show -- much different from the last tour 15 years ago,” said Pete Townshend.
