Roger Daltrey to headline Queen Aids Benefit

Listen to The Who on iHeartRadio

Roger Daltrey has another charity concert on his schedule. 

The Who frontman is on board for the Queen AIDS Benefit.  The special show is set for London's One Mayfair on September 5th - which would have been the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury's 67th birthday. 

Daltrey is part of a lineup that also features Spice Girl Melanie C., tenor Alfie Boe, and comedian Al Murray.  The event will also feature an auction to bring in additional funds.  Items include an Alice Cooper autographed drawing of Freddie, a signed photo of Katy Perry in her "Freddie For A Day" outfit, Billy Joel concert tickets and meet-and-greet passes, and a framed sheet of Freddie Mercury stamps.  Money raised through the Queen AIDS Benefit will go to THe Mercury Phoenix Trust. 

For Daltrey, the Queen AIDS Benefit will be his second charity concert in a four-week span.  Earlier this month he played a fundraiser at Orange County, California's OC Fair in support of The Who's recently established Teen Cancer America.
