The Who plan to go on the road again, according to a new interview Pete Townshend gave with Billboard.

The band, really, just got off. For those following the seminal rock band’s career, they did a series of dates in 2012 and ’13 for the Quadrophenia and More tour, to commemorate their 1973 album.

This time, however, the dates are to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Although the band started in the early 1960s, they didn’t officially become The Who until 1964.

According to Townshend, the group will start in the U.K. around Christmas and then go over to North America by 2015. The tour is expected to go over most of the world.

Regarding the tour, Townshend said: “I'm not crazy about going on the road, but I'm in good shape and once I start doing it -- and I'm still very good at it -- I'll take some pleasure from it."

Townshend further revealed he’s going through 20,000 hours of disorganized material to possibly put together some songs, and may revive his Floss project. He explained: "I'll be pulling some songs out of [his long-gestating project] 'Floss' to give to Roger [Daltrey] to see if we've got enough to make an album. It might be a big waste of time, but I'm hoping there will be an album."
