The house band for the evening is The Who’s band featuring Simon Townshend, Zak Starkey, Pino Palladino, Billy Nicholls, Frank Simes, Loren Gold and John Coury, and they will be joined onstage by some of the best artists in the world all performing Who classics.
Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Liam Gallagher, Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers' James Dean Bradfield, Geddy Lee from Rush, The Strypes, Brody Dalle, Tom Odell, Amy Macdonald, Andy Burrows and Rizzle Kicks as well more to be announced soon, have chosen their favourite WHO songs to perform in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
The Who’s Roger Daltrey is a long-standing patron of Teenage Cancer Trust and has been curating the charity’s annual flagship event, Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, for 15 years. In that time the shows have raised over £19 million to help young people with cancer and the charity has grown to include 28 specialist units and 48 expert teenage cancer nurses and youth-support coordinators.
Tickets to the gig go on sale on Friday, October 31, here.
