Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend to play ‘Legends & Youth Ball’ in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, Arsenal’s Charity of the Season

Teenage Cancer Trust and Arsenal Football Club today announce that rock legends The Who will play at the Club’s annual end of season ball on Thursday 21st May 2009 at Emirates Stadium. 

The Legends & Youth Ball will be hosted by comedian Matt Lucas and will also feature a performance from young soul star V V Brown and a set by DJ Judge Jules. Guests will include Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger and the first team squad. The event marks the end of Arsenal and Teenage Cancer Trust’s season-long partnership which is set to smash its £300,000 fundraising target.

Roger Daltrey CBE, patron of Teenage Cancer Trust and a dedicated Arsenal fan said: “We’re both honoured to be playing at the Legends & Youth Ball to celebrate Arsenal’s fantastic support of Teenage Cancer Trust throughout this season. 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.”

A limited number of tickets for the event are still available. For more details contact Teenage Cancer Trust on 020 7612 0370 or email 

Pairs of tickets are priced £1,200 and tables of ten are priced from £6,000.

Over the course of the season, through the ‘Be A Gooner. Be A Giver.’ campaign, Arsenal has aimed to raise £300,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust. The Club is set to smash this figure, enabling the charity to increase its support for teenagers and young adults with cancer in the London area.
