The Who will be celebrating their 50th anniversary with a The Who Hits 50! world tour that kicks off later next month and runs through next year. Prior to the start of the tour, a benefit concert of Who music in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust will take place on November 11th at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London, England. The Who's house band will be joined onstage to perform Who classics by a number of famous artists including Rush's Geddy Lee. Also appearing will be Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Liam Gallagher, Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers' James Dean Bradfield, The Strypes, Brody Dalle, Tom Odell, Amy Macdonald, Andy Burrows, Rizzle Kicks and more. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 31st at 9AM through Ticketmaster UK. It's not known what Who song(s) Geddy Lee will perform, but Rush included The Who's The Seeker on their 2004 covers EP Feedback, so that is one of the likely possibilities. Thanks to Gary H for the heads up.
