Pete Townshend and friends perform charity show for TCA in Chicago

Pete Townshend teamed up with Eddie Vedder, Joe Walsh, Joan Jett, Rick Nielsen and Simon Townshend last night for a fantastic evening of music at the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago to benefit Teen Cancer America. Roger Daltrey helped to MC the show and sign posters, and the Who’s touring band provided backing for many of the songs. Pete auctioned off a one of kind acetate recording of I'm One that he recorded in Nashville. They were able to raise a ton of money for a very worthy cause, and a wonderful time was had by all!

Here are a few awesome photos by Barry Brecheisen. View the full concert page in The Who Hits 50 section!
