Rod Stewart will attend a special busking show on board the HMS Belfast to launch this year’s Busking Cancer event.

The HMS Belfast is permanently moored on the banks of the River Thames near Tower Bridge in London. The concert will see Madness frontman Suggs join a host of performers on stage in support of the initiative, which will see street performers all over Britain donating their takings to Cancer Research UK.

“When it comes to busking, I’m your man,” said Stewart, who survived thyroid cancer. “That’s how I started in the early 60s on the streets of Paris. So the idea of Busking Cancer has my support. It’s what music is all about just getting out there and singing or playing for the sheer joy of it. And if you can earn a few quid for Cancer Research UK – a few quid that might just help to save someone’s life – what could be better?”

The HMS Belfast concert will take place on June 20, and Busking Cancer will run until June 27. For tickets to the show, click here.
