Halle Berry suffered a minor head injury during a movie-shoot fight sequence and was treated at a Los Angeles hospital and released. Berry’s Los Angeles publicist Meredith O’Sullivan said the 45-year-old actress suffered the injury Tuesday night on the set of her upcoming movie “The Hive.” Berry was taken to a hospital as a precaution and released a short time later. “The Hive” is a thriller co-starring Abigail Breslin and David Otunga. … The Who’s Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are taking “Quadrophenia” and other Who classics on the road for a U.S. tour this fall, but first plan what Daltrey calls a great finale for the Olympic Games in London. “We have recorded a piece of music that is a fabulous ending for the Olympics,” Daltrey said Wednesday as he sat next to Townshend. The Who’s American tour kicks off Nov. 1 in Sunrise, Fla., and will end in Providence, R.I., on Feb. 26.

The last time they toured the United States was in 2008. The two surviving members of the legendary band were asked if they were planning to use holograms, like Dr. Dre did to lifelike effect with the image of Tupac Shakur at Coachella in April, for the late members Keith Moon and John Entwistle. “I thought about it but everybody is doing it now,” said Daltrey. “We were very good on gimmicks in the ’70s but I think we can leave it alone now.” The double album “Quadrophenia,” released in 1973, was the Who’s second acclaimed rock opera, after “Tommy.” Written by Townshend, Daltrey called it “Pete’s pinnacle.” The band will play the album in its entirety. A documentary about the making of the album, “The Who: Quadrophenia — Can You See the Real Me?” will be shown July 24 in theaters across the country.
