THE WHO ANNOUNCE FINAL U.S. SHOW: WHO CARES BENEFIT FOR TEEN CANCER AMERICA AND

MEMORIAL SLOAN-KETTERING CANCER CENTER


LEGENDARY BAND TO BE JOINED BY ACCLAIMED SINGER/SONGWRITER ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS

FOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28 CONCERT AT THEATER AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

 

 

Legendary rockers THE WHO and Elvis Costello & The Imposters will perform an intimate concert Thursday, February 28 at New York City’s The Theater at Madison Square Garden to benefit Teen Cancer America and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

 

Teen Cancer America is igniting a movement around changing the way teens and young adults with cancer are treated and supported from the point of diagnosis.  Funds raised from the February 28 benefit concert will go towards helping hospitals develop units designed to give the very best chance of a positive outcome both physically and emotionally. In addition to state-of-the-art facilities to keep patients occupied during long stays in hospital, the units will strive to provide an environment where they can meet others in a similar situation, helping to support their transition between teen and adulthood.

 

This represents the first-ever New York-area fundraiser THE WHO have performed for Teen Cancer America; Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are the driving force behind Teen Cancer America.  After more than a decade of working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK, they bring their passion for making a difference in the lives of teens and young adults with cancer to the United States.  This special show marks THE WHO’s final 2013 U.S. show (where they’ll perform their greatest hits).
