Legendary Band The Who To Be Joined By Acclaimed Singer/Songwriter Elvis Costello & The Imposters For February 28 Concert At The Theater At Madison Square Garden for the Who Cares Benefit For Teen Cancer.

The Who Announce Final U.S. Show: Who Cares Benefit For Teen Cancer
America
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, And Yale-New Haven
Children's Hospital

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,
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and Yale-New Haven Children’s
Hospital.

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).  

Tickets and VIP packages for the February 28 fundraiser go on sale
Saturday, February 2 at 10:00 AM (ET) via Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster is happy to be a participant donor for The Who’s February
28 show benefiting Teen Cancer America at Madison Square Garden. They
are waiving convenience fees for fans purchasing VIP packages.
