LOS ANGELES, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- The Who has been booked to perform the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLIV Halftime Show in South Florida in February, Universal Music Enterprises said.

The football game and show are to take place at Dolphin Stadium Feb. 7.

More than 151 million viewers in the United States watched last year's show. The Super Bowl and halftime show will be broadcast worldwide in more than 230 countries and territories.

"Many of the classic songs the band will perform are just a few of those included on 'Greatest Hits,' (to be) released Dec. 22," the rock band's record label said Friday. "The largest single-disc 'best of' collection from The Who in more than 10 years, it is the first to span the group's entire recording career to date, from 1964 to 2006. The 19-selection 'Greatest Hits' brings together some of rock's most important, influential and incandescent touchstones, along with an essay by renowned music critic Dave Marsh."
