    Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who have some friends in high places who are helping 'em out for a good cause. The singer and the guitarist have recruited two rad singers for their annual Teenage Cancer Trust benefit concert in the form of Eddie Vedder and Liam Gallagher.

    The Ers – Vedder and Gallagher-- will both perform at the November 11 event, which is being staged at London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.

    They will sing classic Who songs, as will other guest performers, among them Manic Street Preachers' James Dean Bradfield, Rush's Geddy Lee, Tom Odell, and Brody Dalle, formerly of The Distillers.

    Amazing!

    Tickets go on sale Friday, 9am London time via O2ShepherdsBushEmpire.co.uk.
