Wilko Johnson - Wilko Johnson To Perform With Roger Daltrey At Suggs' Charity Show

Wilko Johnson is to raise money for pancreatic cancer research by performing at a charity show in London more than a year after doctors told the rocker he would die from the disease.

The former Dr. Feelgood star announced he had been diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in January, 2013. He was given just months to live, but he refused chemotherapy treatment in order to play a farewell tour.

Johnson is still performing more than a year later, and he has now booked a second slot at a charity show organised by Madness singer Graham 'Suggs' MCPherson to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Uk.

The rocker performed at the same show last year (13), but did not think he would live long enough to give it a second go.

Johnson will play at the 2014 concert in London with his friend and collaborator, The Who's Roger Daltrey, while other performers include musician Jools Holland and singer/songwriter Bo Bruce.

An Evening With Suggs and Friends... takes place at London's Porchester Hall on 20 March (14).
