The Who's patron charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT), will go virtual this year after its legendary string of annual Royal Albert Hall concerts were shut down due to the ongoing pandemic. Among the performers donating clips to the online charity series running free of charge on on YouTube, and titled Teenage Cancer Trust – Unseen, are Paul McCartney, the Who, the Cure, Noel Gallagher, Pulp, Them Crooked Vultures, Muse, and Ed Sheeran. Viewers are urged to watch and donate to TCT.
Rolling Stone reported, “Each stream will air at 3:00 p.m. ET, kicking off with Ed Sheeran on Thursday, October 8th, followed by Muse (October 9th), Paul McCartney (October 11th), Pulp (October 14th), Noel Gallagher (October 15th), Them Crooked Vultures (October 16th), the Who (October 17th), and the Cure (October 18th). A second Cure livestream will also air, with more details to be announced.”
