The Who want Liam Gallagher for Teenage Cancer Trust shows
Veteran rockers urge ex-Oasis singer to team up for 'Quadrophenia'
The singer said he wants the former Oasis star to team up with the group when they play their classic 'Quadrophenia' album at the conclusion of this year's run of shows for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity.
He told Absolute Radio: "I actually rung Liam to be part of The Who night, but he's otherwise engaged.
"We've actually got room for two guests, and anyone who wants to turn up and do something after we do 'Quadrophenia', just to round off the night, you know - let's see what happens."
Noel Gallagher has already been signed up to perform two gigs for the charity at London's Royal Albert Hall on March 25, 26.
"This is the first thing he's done, and he's always been involved with these shows," said Daltrey.
"In the first year he guested with us on those first shows, and he's done it with Oasis, he's done it on his own, solo. Post-Oasis, it's his first, and it's his only thing planned for the year."
Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures and a reformed Suede are also set to perform.
The full line-up is:
Them Crooked Vultures (March 22)
Jimmy Carr, Noel Fielding and Rhod Gilbert (23)
Noel Gallagher (25, 26)
Arctic Monkeys (27)
The Who (30)
