A massive concert in aid of the charity Killing Cancer has been announced.

Acts confirmed so far include The Who, Debbie Harry, Jeff Beck and Richard Ashcroft.

It’s set to take place at the Hammersmith Apollo on 13 January 2011, with The Who manager Bill Curbishley and legendary promoter Harvey Goldsmith behind it.

Goldsmith has revealed to 6 Music that another star has just come on board.

“Last night Bryan Adams called up,” he explained. “He heard about it and said, 'I want to join in as well', so that’s our line-up.”

The bash is aimed at raising a considerable amount of money which will help scientists conclude tests on a groundbreaking new form of cancer therapy.

Goldsmith told us how he became involved with the charity.

“We were really intrigued by the teams that are working on this form of treatment and said we’d help. When they came to see us and said they needed £150,000 to finish these trials off Bill and I got together and said; ‘Let’s put on a concert, raise the balance of that money and put it to good use.’”

Pre-sale tickets are available next Tuesday but go on general sale on Friday 19th November.

More details can be found at the Killing Cancer official site.
