The Who‘s Roger Daltrey will close out the nearly quarter-century run of his Teenage Cancer Trust fundraising gigs in March with a week of all-star shows benefitting the British charity dedicating to helping young people needing nursing care and support after diagnosis.

The organization announced the line-up for the shows at the Royal Albert Hall in London, with the Who slated to take the stage on March 18 and 20 with an orchestra, with support from Squeeze and Noel Gallagher tapped to headline on March 21 with support from Blossoms. There will also be an as-yet-unannounced lineup of stand-up comedians on March 19, a march 22 gig from Young Fathers and a March 23 lineup featuring the Chemical Brothers and DJ Paul Holroyd.

The final show — dubbed “Ovation” — on March 24 will be a blow-out celebrating the 24 years of TCT shows featuring Daltrey, the Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones, Robert Plant with Saving Grace, Pete Townshend, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Paul Weller.

Daltrey has been hosting and curating the fundraising shows since 2000, raising more than $40 million to date, which the organization said has paid for more than a million hours of specialist care from TCT nurses, or 13 TCT hospital care units. “The £32 million raised from these concerts has been the foundation for the 28 specialised units within the NHS, as well as specialist nurses and youth workers to be there for a young person when cancer has turned their world upside down,”Daltrey said in a statement.

Tickets for the show will go on sale at 9 a.m. GMT on Jan. 12.

Beginning in 2025 the concert series will continue with a series of guest curators. Last year’s show featured Daltrey along with the Verve’s Richard Ashcroft, Joan Armatrading, Underworld, Kasabian and comedian Alan Carr, among many others.
