A photography exhibition featuring pictures of The Who is set to open next year in London.

'Fifty Years of The Who' by photographer Colin Jones will take place at Proud Galleries from February 5 - March 23, 2014, reports Music News. The exhibit will feature pictures taken on the road, backstage and at home with the iconic band.

Meanwhile, Roger Daltrey recently had to clarify Pete Townshend's statement about the fact The Who will stop touring after a final series of live shows in 2015, scaling down their operation. However, in an interview with Billboard, Daltrey says this will not be the end of The Who but merely an acknowledgment that at their age they can no longer invest the energy needed to stage a lengthy tour.

"I think you have to clarify what he said, and what we mean is we cannot keep going on doing these month-after-month, long, extended tours," he added. "It's extremely hard, hard work, just the grind of it. So we have to be realistic. The band got better reviews on our last tour (the 2012-13 'Quadrophenia & More' trek) than we had for years. It was incredibly enjoyable. It was incredibly exhausting, and we have to be realistic about our age. But it's not going to be the last thing The Who will do."

Elaborating on what The Who will do in the future, Daltrey added that their charity work will continue, as well as more "experimental" ideas: "We're going to be doing events. We're going to be doing shows. We might do other things, more experimental. We might decide to do something in a theatre, some small production where we sit down for two or three weeks in one town; that could be managed 'cause we're not schlepping our bodies from city to city. The joy of the stage is wonderful, but the traveling every day is exhausting."
