THE WHO have confirmed that they will be part of the annual Legends And Youth Ball at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.
Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend announced that they will play acoustic versions of their hits at the Premiership football club's annual charity ball in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust on May 21.
Daltrey said: "I have been fighting for this cause for many years and I'm thrilled that this partnership has made and will continue to make a huge difference to young people with cancer."
Daltrey, an Arsenal fan, wrote a specially commissioned song called 'Highbury Highs', which he played after the last match at the club's old stadium in 2006.
Tables for the charity event are priced at £10,000 for Diamond packages and £6,000 for Platinum packages.

From the ashes of one popular band rises another. After Nirvana broke up, former member David Grohl opted to launch his own band. Many were surprised at this move since the talented musician received a number of solid offers from stable bands such as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Undaunted, Grohl struck out on his own and opted to form his own band.
Grohl procured the services of Nate Mendel, William Goldsmith, and Pat Smear to fill out the band which he dubbed The Foofighters. At the time, some looked at the name of the band and immediately dismissed it as a novelty act. The unique name derives from the World World Two term for unidentified flying objects.
In a way, this is an appropriate name for the band since it appeared out of the blue to much unexpected success. Keep in mind, when members of a popular band launch their own new band, success is minuscule. As such, many did not believe that The Foofighters would have a chance at being successful. Clearly, the band proved the critics wrong.
The Foo Fighters first album originally circulated as what was essentially a demo tape. It seemed that Grohl was not completely open about his concepts for the band. This is why he declined interviews and kept a low profile. The debut album was eventually acquired by Capital Records and the label gave it a huge release. The album was wildly successful and it led to Foo Fighters merch moving faster than anyone anticipated. Of course, people were more interested than just acquiring more Foo Fighters merch.
They wanted to get their hands on another album. The Foo Fighters delivered in this regard and their second album "The Colour and the Shape" was released in 1996. A subsequent tour was launched and the band played to huge audiences. Of course, with more tickets, albums, and Foo Fighters merch being sold, the music industry realized it had a very special band in its midst. The Foo Fighters were not a fly by night band that was going to disappear from the entertainment landscape. They were definitely a band that had legs.

THE KILLERS have denied that there is a feud between two members of the band
Frontman Brandon Flowers said there is no rift between himself and drummer Ronnie Vannucci.
The singer had sparked speculation of discontent between them earlier this year when he admitted he had fantasies about beating up Vannucci on stage.
Speaking to NME, he said: "It's not true. I mean tensions come and go but at the moment everybody's being pretty nice to each other.
"We disagree about everything from what a single is going to be, to how many days off we are gonna have per week. We go through all that stuff.
"The band is a democracy and in a perfect world you'd have the same four answers. But the fact is, we don't."
Vannucci added: "There is a happy, homey feel in the band lately. I can confirm there have been no fights."

The rockers announced a year-long hiatus last year, and have now decided to extend it by a further six months.
But they insisted they weren't splitting up, just taking a much-needed break.
Speaking to Q magazine, drummer Chad Smith said: "We're not playing right now, but we played a lot before. It was time to take a little break and live your life."
Smith is currently recording with new 'supergroup' Chickenfoot, made up of Joe Satriani and Van Halen's Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony.
The four-piece, who release their self-titled LP on June 8, will perform at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on June 25 and at a number of summer festivals.
Meanwhile, Chili Peppers bassist Flea has signed up to study music at a California university

POLICE have started a probe into an alleged ticket scam after hundreds of AC/DC fans were turned away from a concert this weekend.
Fans who arrived at the legendary's rock band's gig in Birmingham on Saturday to collect their tickets were turned away after being told they had been conned by counterfeiters.
Others who already had tickets were being turned away after they were scanned at the entrance of the LG Arena at the NEC and found to be fakes.
Many of those who had legitimate tickets missed the first hour of the show as massive queues formed outside the venue.
Police arrested two men at the scene on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud. An investigation into the internet arm of the deception is ongoing.
A spokeswoman for the NEC Group said: "West Midlands Police are now investigating this matter. Regrettably the tickets in question were fraudulent so we had no choice but to refuse these fans entry."
Last night a spokesman for West Midlands police said: Two men, aged 41 and 32, were arrested at the NEC LG Arena on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud.
They both continue to help police with their inquiries.
