The tribute act – led by Bellamy – has previously seen the Muse frontman team up with the likes of Miles Kane and Paul McCartney himself.

Daltrey says of the news: “I’m very happy to welcome Muse’s Matt Bellamy who will be joining me on my night for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall Thurs 22 March. Matt will be bringing his Dr. Pepper’s Jaded Hearts Club Band including Blur’s Graham Coxon to belt out a set of Beatles classics. It’s their first UK show and will be great fun.”

The Who frontman adds of what to expect from his own set: “I’m looking forward to playing The Who hits and I will also be revisiting some of the rarer songs that I’ve recorded with The Who and as a solo artist. By ‘rarer’ I mean songs like ‘How Many Friends’, ‘Its Not Enough’, ‘Giving It All Away’ and others that were never played live before.”

“I am always so grateful for the artists who come out to support this charity. It’s going to be another special night for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall and we’re all really looking forward to it.”
