Roger Daltrey - Sir Paul Mccartney Re-arranged Gigs For Roger Daltrey's Charity Concert

Roger Daltrey has heaped praise on Sir Paul Mccartney after the Beatles star arranged his European tour dates specifically so he could play a gig for the rocker's cancer charity in Britain.
The Who frontman founded the annual Teenage Cancer Trust shows in 2000 and announced last month (Feb12) that MCCartney, Pulp, Jessie J and Florence and the MAChine had signed up for this year's (12) extravaganza.
Daltrey's now revealed MCCartney was set to play in 2011 but had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts - so he did everything possible to ensure he was available for this year's gigs at London's Royal Albert Hall.
Daltrey tells Britain's The Sun, "Sir Paul has been brilliant. We almost got him last year but he couldn't make the date work. He said, 'I'll be there for you next year, Rog' - and here he is.
"He did a few extra shows in Europe to make it work so no one had to foot the bill of getting his show here - and that means a lot. To see his full arena show in the Albert Hall will be a once-in-a-lifetime thing. He's the most iconic figure in the world."
MCCartney will kick off the concert series with his gig on Thursday (29Mar12).

This charity is a very good idea, providing comfort for young people suffering not just physically, but from severe emotional trauma, as well. It must be horrible to find oneself, suddenly, so gravely ill. Sirs, Dudes, Guys: Thank You.
