Following their Thursday night concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, The Who hit Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show stage the next night. The band performed their 1978 hit “Who Are You?,” which also serves as the CSI theme song.
The Who is currently performing across the U.S. on The Who Hits 50! Tour, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the band. Singer Roger Daltrey described it as “the beginning of a long goodbye.” The band will now go on to perform in Boston on March 7.

It read, “David Bowie. Friend of The Who. Son of New York. Tonight we will distinctly miss David Bowie, longtime fan of The Who. He’s told the story of how he climbed the fence at London’s Roundhouse to sneak backstage and give Pete Townshend a copy of his new 1969 album, David Bowie. He covered ‘I Can’t Explain’ and ‘Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere’ on his Pin Ups album. Nearly every year at MSG, he sat in the first row right beside the stage. We’ll miss our friend, a true icon of music and art, and a brilliant innovator.”
