    Pete Townshend, guitarist and principal songwriter of The Who and co-founder of Teen Cancer America, will come together with Billy Idol, Eddie Vedder, Alfie Boe, the Chicagoland Pops Orchestra and Chicago Children’s Choir for one memorable night of music. Townshend will bring his Classic Quadrophenia stage show to the Rosemont Theatre as part of his ongoing efforts to raise money for teenagers with cancer in America.

    For over 17 years, The Who band members have been patrons of the successful UK charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust. Their efforts have raised millions of dollars through performances and special events. In 2012, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend established Teen Cancer America to replicate their work in this country. Townshend has chosen Chicago as the city to host this very special fundraising performance.

    I'll already be in town that coming weekend for the Cubs/Cards series. Very tempting to try to add this to the trip.

    "Meet and greet with Pete Townshend and guests."  Guests would include Ed and Billy Idol I assume?

    I'm a little torn about this... the last Who/EV fundraiser at Rosemont was tough to justify the $100/750 ticket prices.
    Great to see this happening, and nothing will stop me from going, but definitely arriving with lower expectations.

    I'm searching for it too. I'm on all the Chicago presale email lists so I would guess it will be sent out.

    Thanks! Same to you. Looks like it is MB presale (member maybe?) and a venue presale. Maybe someone that is local can call the Rosemont and see if there is any info?

    Presale codes - What's "MB" referencing? Can't seem to dig up anything for the venue presale either.

    Yes - If I remember correctly, their last show was pretty short (maybe less than 90min) with Ed on stage for only a few songs.  I remember a lot of people asking "that was it?" at the end of the show.

    I sometimes forget how spoiled we are with 2.5 hour PJ shows.

    The last time they did this the show was a little short but it was awesome. No complaints. Loved the venue and loved everything about it. I would love it if Ed wasn't involved just for the fact Quadrophenia is my fave Who album. They were so solid when they played last.

    We missed it last time because of a trip but happy to have a second chance. Have to consider those prices and how high to go.

    Last time I flew in that morning without tickets and at 2 p.m. I pulled the trigger on a pair of $750 for $300 each off of one of the online sites.
     Well worth it.
