The Who & Elvis Costello to Play Who Cares Benefit in NYC


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.

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

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. This special show marks The Who’s final 2013 U.S. show (where they’ll perform their greatest hits).
