Pearl Jam star Vedder will take on vocal duties from Roger Daltrey for the supergroup's Celebrating The Who gig at the Rosemont Theatre in Illinois next month (May15), while Starkey will join fellow The Who regulars Simon Townshend and Pino Palladino for the concert, which will benefit the University of Chicago Medicine and other local children's charities.

The concert will be the latest staged by Teen Cancer America, the organisation Daltrey and Townshend established in 2012.
