Rock legends The Who will hit the stage alongside Jeff Beck, Blondie singer Debbie Harry and The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft in a charity concert against cancer early next year.

Charity KILLING Cancer will host the massive concert at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on January 13 to raise funds for its goal of raising £50m to fund further trials into Photodynamic Therapy, a treatment that can help cure some forms of cancer by killing cells through a combination of drugs and light. PDT is a unique treatment that has garnered support from celebrities such as Robert Plant, Stefanie Powers,Alex Fergusson and many more.

“Robert [Plant] and I had lived through the final months and days of close friends battling with cancer,” said The Who manager Bill Curbishley. “But also fighting to overcome the effects of their treatments. Only later we discovered that PDT could perhaps have saved their lives – and certainly given them some dignity in their final weeks.”

Tickets will go on sale on Friday here.
