Pete Townshend and Eddie Vedder will be performing together at a concert to benefit Teen Cancer America. The show will take place on May 14 at the relatively intimate 4,400 seat Rosemont Theatre in Chicago, the day after The Who perform at the Allstate Arena. Pete and Eddie will be accompanied by The Who’s backing band (Simon Townshend, Zak Starkey, Pino Palladino, Frank Simes, Loren Gold, John Corey), and the event is billed as “An Evening Celebrating The Who”. This will be a fantastic night of music, so you don't want to miss it!
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 21, and reserved seats ($1,000/$750/$500/$250/$100) can be purchased at the Rosemont Theatre box office, online at Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000. For more information, call the Rosemont Theatre at 847-671-5100.
